Poland raids suspected pedophiles' homes

Polish police said they arrested 68 people on suspicion they were involved in pedophilia-related crimes.

In a large-scale raid against people believed to be distributing pornographic pictures of children, police searched 61 homes and confiscated 76 personal computers, Polish Radio said Wednesday.

Karol Jakubowski, a head in the Polish Police Department said they also seized about 7,000 CDs, DVDs, diskettes, video cassettes and 19 hard discs.

Investigating judges are currently processing charges against the detained suspects.

If put on trial and found guilty, they are facing jail terms of up to eight years, the radio said.
