Brazilian police arrested 132 men on Thursday in the country’s largest offensive against child pornography on the internet, seizing more than 1 million picture files in 284 cities across the country.

The operation involved 2,600 police officers, who seized computers, thumb drives and cellphones for inspection.

The men arrested in the operation faced charges of sexual exploitation of children and adolescents.

Under Brazilian law, anyone found in possession of child pornography can face a prison sentence of up to four years, increasing to six years for selling pictures and eight years for producing pornographic material with children.
