The UK police has arrested a woman on suspicion of sending indecent images of children to Facebook, the Guardian reports.
The woman was detained at a London airport on Friday, the newspaper said, citing police sources.
The suspect is suspected of abusing more than 20 children between the ages of eight and 12, according to a police source, who spoke to the newspaper on condition of anonymity.
The UK’s Metropolitan Police said in a statement that it was “aware of the recent reports and is conducting a full investigation.”
The Met said it was looking into the case, and that it is cooperating fully with authorities.
Facebook said in December that it has reached agreements with the police and social media companies to help prevent the spread of illegal content on its platform.
The company also said it had introduced a new “safe harbor” feature for content that does not violate local laws.
