Dozens arrested in US probe of child rape images

NEW YORK - A corporate lawyer, an architect and at least two dozen others were arrested when police smashed a child pornography ring that traded images of sexual assault "the way others trade baseball cards," Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance said on Tuesday.
Children as young as 1 year old were depicted being raped and sexually abused in tens of thousands of photographs and videos seized at the culmination of the five-month investigation, Vance said at a press conference.
"These images are not pornography...These images are babies and children and toddlers being raped and sexually exploited," Vance said.
"These images were disseminated on the internet, feeding the appetites of pedophiles seeking new victims," he said.
