The FBI has arrested a US man for attempting to buy two children on the Net for the purpose of engaging in sex.

Fifty-three year-old Jonathan Christopher Wood, from Georgia, was prepared to pay £8,000 for the boys, according to Reuters.

The FBI's Crimes Against Children Taskforce, which monitors paedophile activity, made the arrest earlier this month.

Wood was caught after the FBI tracked his activities in an Internet chat room.

It's not known whether children were genuinely for sale, or whether the incident was part of an FBI sting to snare paedophiles.

However, no one else has been arrested in connection with the sale.

Wood had recently moved to Georgia from Arizona, where he had owned a company that provided Internet access.®
