Sydney - Australian police said on Wednesday they had infiltrated a network of international paedophiles, culminating in raids and arrests in Australia, the United States, Germany and Britain.
Operation Achilles, which was co-ordinated by the FBI in the United States, began in January 2006 and ended on February 29, 2008, with police staging raids around the world.
Australian police said the international covert operation uncovered 2 500 "customers" in 19 countries and thousands of computers, videos and photographs were seized. In a large number of cases, more than a million files and pictures were found.
More than 40 children were rescued from sexually abusive situations and 22 members of the paedophile network were arrested.

It would take months for the agency that licenses Oregon teachers to discipline a Salem-area teacher for inappropriately touching at least eight girls.
To get Kenneth John Cushing, then 44, away from Claggett Creek Middle School students immediately, administrators cut him a deal: If Cushing resigned, they would conceal his alleged conduct — clutching students’ waists, touching their buttocks and massaging their shoulders — from the public.
