Porn Ring Bust

A major Internet pornography bust has resulted in the indictments of 10 Americans and six foreigners.

One of the suspects is from Palm Beach, Florida.

The U.S. customs service said they're charged with taking sexually-explicit photos of their own children or kids in their care.

The pictures were then sent over the Internet to an international child porn ring dubbed "the Club."

The defendants include nine people from seven states who were indicted in Fresno, California -- along with several others from Denmark, Switzerland and the Netherlands.

Forty-five children -- many of them in the U.S. -- were victims. Most of the victims were between the ages of two and 14. Most of them are now in the custody of another parent or relative.

The customs service investigation began last November.
