FRENCH COPS MAKE PEDOPHILIA SWEEP
Dozens of people were detained and 3,000 child pornography videos were seized in a nationwide sweep this week as French police tried to crack a pedophilia network. Some two dozen of the 55 people detained Wednesday were placed under formal investigation, one step short of being charged, for receiving videos of child pornography. About 130 investigators took part in the sweep across 34 regions of France. Police were acting on a tip by one of four men arrested last year on pedophilia charges. The four men were arrested in Aveyron, southern France.
