(ANSA) – FLORENCE, APR 12 – Florentine postal police have
arrested two persons and placed another 22 under investigation
in a probe into online child pornography, judicial sources said
Monday.
    The men arrested are a 45-year-old from the province of Pistoia,
who is a repeat offender, police said, and a 47-year-old from
the province of Florence.
    They are accused of possessing huge quantities of pornographic
material produced using people under the age of 18.
    Some 16 people have been placed under investigation in Tuscany
alone.
    But the probe spans 17 provinces in nine Italian regions, police
said.
    The child porn was distributed on chats of the instant messaging
app Kik, police said.
    The probe was opened after a report from Canadian police,
conveyed via Europol.
    The 24 users are all accused of using and spreading child
pornography on the Internet. (ANSA).
