Nine Canadians, including social workers and people involved with children’s organizations, have been arrested on charges of possessing child pornography purchased from a European Web site, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police said on Tuesday.

Dubbed “Operation Koala”, the Canadian probe was part of an international investigation into sales of child porn, in which 98 Canadian are suspected.

Police said at a press conference that the nine arrested were all male. Of the 98 suspects, investigators said they were working on 50 ongoing cases and there would likely be more arrests. They said they had not been able to identify all the suspects.
