Massive legal Italian job

Some 1500 people face child pornography charges after the Italian authorities joined forces with Microsoft to set an online trap to paedophiles.

Weekend reports claim Prosecutor Alfredo Ormanni ordered 831 Italians to stand trial for alleged paedophile crimes.

He has also asked that 660 foreigners be "tracked down" and brought to trial.

According to Newsbytes, the elaborate sting revolved around a fake site called "amantideibambini" - which means the lover sof children. ®
