Three South Africans are among the 1 000 suspected paedophiles trapped by a computer-generated 10-year-old girl. The three have been reported to Interpol, The Star reported. Dutch rights group Terre des Hommes Netherlands said it had deployed the computer-generated Filipina girl – dubbed Sweetie – to Internet chat rooms to ensnare web predators.

The group said it wanted to raise the alarm about a largely unknown but quickly spreading new form of child exploitation that has tens of thousands of victims in the Philippines alone, known as webcam child sex tourism.
