72 Charged in Child-Porn Ring

Seventy-two people in the United States have been charged with participating in a massive international child-pornography ring. Attorney General Eric Holder and Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano announced the result of the investigation on Wednesday, which discovered almost 600 people around the world. Members of the group traded heavily encrypted images using a private Internet bulletin board called Dreamboard. It’s the largest U.S. prosecution of an international child-porn ring, according to the Justice Department.
