Australian Federal Police have released details of a major investigation into an alleged child sex abuse network that operated across three states.
Police said 40 charges had been laid and nine men arrested in relation to child abuse that was filmed, photographed and shared online.
The operation began in February after a tip-off from US authorities.
At least 14 children have been removed from harmful situations.
Two men aged in their 20s were arrested yesterday on the NSW mid-north coast, and have each been charged with offences relating to the harm and exploitation of children.
The AFP will allege the pair were part of an online network that abused Australian children and recorded the crimes to share with others.
Police said the arrests were linked to alleged criminal activity across NSW, Queensland and Western Australia.
