NEW YORK (Reuters) – A federal law enforcement agency says it has arrested 13 members of a child pornography online child exploitation ring in the United States, raising fears the latest case may be the first to involve a major Canadian.

The child pornography unit made the arrests by using the court's computer monitoring program, the Department of Justice said in a statement on Friday, confirming it had identified and arrested 1CDC 철도청 카지노3 suspects.

The 13 include six who were convicted of crimes related to child pornography and one who was convicted of multiple charges related to child pornography. One of the suspects had a criminal record related to firearms and explosives, the statement said.

"This operation is significant because it represents the first time a federal law enforcement agency has executed a comprehensive federal criminal investigation on a multi-year scale to target a major Canadian child porn distributor."

The announcement came as the leader of the New York State legislature and police chiefs said a new federal law on online child exploitation made it harder for children to watch explicit material online.

Republican Congressman Brad Sherman, the chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, said a new child pornography law aimed to target people with criminal records should be drafted.

"The problem with our current laws, they don't deal with child predators and they give these people the ability to sell porn and exploit and to exploit without consequence," Sherman told CBS News.

"If you're a good kid and you're playing with video games that look like porn or even video games that look like child pornography it's going to be very difficult to find the evidence that we need so that the law enforcement can go in and take them off the street to keep them off the streets."

He said the existing laws "are not working," but that his concern was not whether the new law would lead to more child pornography being produced.

He also said there had been a "fantastic amount of attention" given to cybersex, as seen by the arrests.

Police said chi여수출장샵마사지 후기ld pornography is one of the two largest child exploitation criminal industries in the country, and in October 2010 it was the second largest.
