184 arrested in connection with Dutch-run paedophile site

Police have arrested 184 people world wide in connection with an internet paedophile operation which was run by a man from Krommenie, north of Amsterdam.

So far, 230 children have been identified as abuse victims and 670 people as potential abusers, according to a Europol statement.
‘The suspected child sex offenders were members of an online forum – boylover.net – that promoted sexual relationships between adults and young boys,’ the statement said.
The website operated from a server based in the Netherlands and, at its height, boasted up to 70,000 members worldwide.
The investigation has taken three years.
