Philippine agents arrest 9 accused of running Internet child pornography operation from school

MANILA, Philippines - Philippine government agents have raided an alleged Internet child porn operation based in a school and arrested its president and eight other people.

Cybercrime investigation head Ronald Aguto says the suspects used a room at the Mountaintop Christian Academy in Metropolitan Manila to post images and video on the Internet for foreign consumption.

Aguto said Tuesday more than 40 computers were seized as evidence.

Aguto said the school had 2,000 elementary and high school students. Its license was revoked in 2006 for unknown reasons but it had remained open.

He says authorities were still investigating, but it didn't appear that children at the school were being abused.
