Interpol announces taskforce to tackle internet child abuse

Interpol Secretary General Ronald K. Noble today announced the creation of a specialist taskforce to tackle a new threat posed to children via the internet.
Addressing the 'Paris meeting on missing and sexually exploited children', Mr Noble revealed that through its support in online child abuse investigations, Interpol had identified a disturbing new trend of criminals using 'modelling' sites to gain access to children.
The sites do not contain sexually graphic pictures, but instead serve as a front enabling paedophiles to contact the site owners to gain direct physical access to the 'models,' and also buy abuse images.
