TORONTO (AP) — Ontario police say they have arrested 80 people as part of a sweeping investigation into internet child pornography in the province.

Ontario Provincial Police said Thursday the investigation involved 274 charges against 80 people, including one youth.

Charges include sexual assault, possession of child pornography, making child pornography, distributing child pornography and accessing child pornography. Police say 20 victims have been identified.
