(ANSA) – ROME, FEB 9 – The Italian postal police said Tuesday
that the online grooming of young children by paedophiles is on
the rise.
    It said it handled 14 cases of grooming regarding children aged
nine or younger in 2018, 26 in 2019 and 41 in 2020 in figures
released on Safer Internet Day.
    It said children spending more time online due to the COVID-19
pandemic and the related restrictions may have been a factor in
the sharp rise last year.
