An American citizen has been extradited to the US to face charges relating to child porn, the US justice ministry said on Thursday.

The man, aged 43 and known as Christopher David R, was handed over to the US authorities two weeks ago and will appear in court on January 11. He is being held in Fresno, California.
R is accused of sexually exploiting a juvenile in California, Mexico, Costa Rica and the Netherlands, Dutch news agencies report, quoting BNO News. The man was tracked down after uploading child porn, some produced by himself, to the Microsoft cloud service SkyDrive, BNO said.
