‘750,000 paedophiles prowling the net’
Some 750,000 sexual predators are constantly prowling the internet in a bid to gain contact with children, a United Nations report warns. “The number of sites devoted to child pornography worldwide is growing. The number of predators connected to the internet at any one time is estimated to be 750,000,” said Najat Maala, Special Rapporteur on the child prostitution and child pornography issue. Unicef also estimates there are more than four million websites featuring minors, including those of children aged under two years.
