A sweeping child pornography investigation has led to the rescue of 386 children around the world and the arrest of 348 people, Canadian police said Thursday.
Toronto police describe the Project Spade operation as one of the largest child porn busts they've ever seen.
"It is alleged that officers seized hundreds of thousands of videos detailing horrific sexual acts against very young children, some of the worst that they have ever viewed," Inspector Joanna Beaven-Desjardins said.
Police said 108 people were arrested in Canada and 76 in the U.S. Others were arrested in other countries.
Australian Federal Police commander Glen McEwen on Friday confirmed that 65 men had been arrested in Australia as a result of the Canadian investigation, and six Australian children had been removed from harm.
Police said the children were "rescued from child exploitation" but did not give more details.
School teachers, doctors and actors were among those arrested.
And by the way, whatever happened with the charges of producing Child Pornography against Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne's former right-hand man, OISE professor Ben Levin?
