Three men suspected of hiring out girls as young as seven for sex were arrested in Austria after a reporter and a photographer for the weekly magazine, News, infiltrated a child-sex ring by posing as clients. News published naked photos of the three young girls offered to its staff but blacked out their facial features. Two of the girls were aged 13, the third 12.

The magazine printed excerpts from a catalogue of more than 70 girls, all Slovakian, the youngest of whom was four. The four-year-old was said to be only available for pornographic videos, while the youngest being offered for sex was seven. Police said the suspects did not appear to be connected to a Belgian child-sex ring headed by Marc Dutroux. AP - Vienna
