Who says PC Plod's got no imagination?

Police are investigating hundreds of people across Germany, after conducting a "major sting" against child porn on the Internet, AP reports.

The suspects are under scrutiny for browsing a Web site showing illegal pictures of children. In the eastern state of Saxony-Anhalt, police raided 13 homes, removing computers, floppy disks and magazines in search of child pornography.

And in North-Rhine Westphalia, police said they were investigating 258 people, according to AP. ®
