'Highly respected' Alabama evangelist arrested on charges of molesting a teenage boy

2018 Paso Robles Press

The release says that 150 people are apprehended and a dozen children rescued from abuse.

Police say the alleged victims were as young as 10 months old.

Police in Toronto launched an undercover investigation in January 2015, after the National Crime Agency in the United Kingdom alerted police agencies around the world of an online group "using various social networking platforms" to distribute child abuse material, said Toronto Police Det.

"The Australian public service has a zero tolerance for any abuse, particularly abuse of children", Parkinson said in a statement on Thursday.

The U.K.'s National Crime Agency identified one of the alleged participants as a Toronto man, leading to the involvement of police there.

She said the live-streaming of children being sexually abused is "on the rise" and putting a dent in the huge global problem is "a daunting task".

Melissa Ruiz, Attaché for Homeland Security Investigations in Ottawa, provides details of an investigation into online child sex abuse, dubbed Project Mercury, at Toronto Police Headquarters on Thursday, April 12, 2018.

After recovering evidence from the man's computer, Blackadar said numerous forces across Canada collaborated with the National Crime Agency and Homeland Security Investigations in the U.S.to get Project Mercury off the ground.

British PM order submarines to get within missile range to Syria - newspaper
The air base the USA hit with sea-based cruise missiles began launching aircraft again within 24 hours of the strike . Officials from Russia , Assad's patron, warned that their forces would shoot down US missiles.

A man who works for Australia's Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C) has been charged with seven counts of child sexual abuse.

Blackadar said that arrest led police to others involved in the distribution of child abuse material and Project Mercury was launched as perpetrators in other Canadian provinces, across the USA and in Europe were identified.

Arrests made in Canada included seven in Toronto along with other arrests in Ottawa, Edmonton, Belleville, Thunder Bay, Quebec, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Saskatoon.

Ellis said British police also prevented a child from being adopted by an offender and removed another from foster care.

The probe, nicknamed Project Mercury, eventually expanded to include Toronto police and law enforcement agencies in the United States.

USA authorities arrested 58 suspects, according to Homeland Security Investigations Attache Melissa Ruiz.

"This is certainly one of the more disturbing cases that we've investigated in quite some time", Rector told media.
