Arrests made as Germany shuts down one of the world’s largest child porn platforms

German police have uncovered one of the world’s largest underground websites for child pornography with more than 400,000 users.

German police said on Monday they had shut down “one of the biggest darknet child pornography platforms in the world” and arrested four of its members in a series of raids in mid-April.

The platform, named as “Boystown”, had existed since 2019, counted over 400,000 members and was “set up for the worldwide exchange of child pornography, in particular images of the abuse of boys”, federal police said in a statement.
