Seventy two people from 14 countries have been charged by US authorities with participating in an international child pornography network. 43 have been arrested in the US and nine abroad.

Another 20 are known to authorities only by their Internet names and remain at large. An online bulletin called 'Dreamboard', used to trade tens of thousands of images and videos of sexually abused children, has been shut down. Many participants in the network sexually abused children aged 12 and under, in some cases infants.

Janet Napolitano, US Homeland Security Secretary, said, "To give you an example of the scope of this forum, the capture and analysis of the forum revealed that the board may have been the vehicle for the distribution of up to 123 terabytes of child pornography, which is roughly equivalent to nearly 16,000 DVDs."
