Norwegian police have raided 19 locations and made an unknown number of arrests as part of a Europe-wide operation to stem the spread of child porn.

Norwegian white-collar crimes unit, Kripos, confirmed for The Local that police were acting in concert with their European counterparts. Together, they followed the lead offered by Internet Protocol, or IP addresses where the illegal and harmful material had been shared.

Devices identified by their IPs were confiscated in the raids, and in Sweden at least, 12 arrests were known to have been made. Dwellings in both countries were ransacked, while computers, storage devices and media were seized.

In Norway, 13 precincts were in action as part of a program called CIRCAMP, or Cospol Internet Related Child Abusive Material Projekt.

The exact number of arrests made in Norway had not been made public by early Thursday, and police could not confirm the raids were over.
