Canada: Canadian federal police said Thursday they rescued five young children from sexual abuse as part of a massive pedophile porn investigation.

The operation led by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and involving 40 other agencies resulted in "the rescue of five children from sexual abuse," RCMP Sergeant Mike Petrilli told a press conference.

"All of them were prepubescent children."

More than 100 individuals have been charged in the case or are currently under investigation for sexual assault, luring, possession, distribution, making available child pornography and related offenses under Canadian law.

The RCMP said two million images and videos were found on seized computers and hard drives.

"Sadly, many of these cases have images depicting infants and toddlers," Petrilli said.

"These are not simply children having a bubble bath," he said.
"They are clearly children that are in a situation where they are being sexually assaulted."
