Vienna - A huge child porn ring involving more than 100 men, including four teachers and a kindergarten worker, has been smashed in Austria, police said on Sunday.

A spokesperson for the federal criminal office BKA, Alexander Marakovits, told Austrian news agency APA that pornographic material was seized during raids of 107 homes around the country following a tip-off from Luxembourg.

The men, aged between 18 and 70 from various social backgrounds, are suspected of downloading the material from a server in Luxembourg, with some of them trying to cover their tracks by using internet cafes, Marakovits said.

One of the men had a stash of some 20 000 photos and 300 videos, the spokesperson said.
