Berlin: Nine men appeared in court in
Germany on Wednesday charged with organising a vast international
child porn ring, in one of the country`s biggest such cases.

Two of the nine men, aged between 30 and 58, were
charged with sexual abuse of children in addition to
distributing child pornography.

Prosecutors said the men acted as administrators for a
group with some 500 members worldwide, 140 of whom have
already been identified.

Authorities smashed the ring last year, seizing 220
computers and around 100,000 videos and pictures of child
pornography.
