Journalist suspected of seducing minors online

Suspect allegedly opened Facebook account as woman named 'Anna' and made underage children strip, touch themselves and send him intimate photos

An Israeli journalist was arrested on suspicion of posing as a woman online, and causing underage children to strip in front of the camera. He is suspected of possession of pedophilia and child pornography as well as indecent acts and will face a remand hearing at the Tel Aviv Magistrate's Court later on Tuesday.


Police launched a secret investigation after receiving a complaint on the matter.


It is suspected that the journalist, a Tel Aviv resident in his 30s, opened a Facebook account as a woman named Anna and held erotic online calls with minors. Police also suspect he got the minors to strip, touch themselves and send him intimidate photos of themselves.


Earlier this month, a Haifa doctor was sentenced to 18 months in prison for possession and distribution of pedophilia. More than 190,000 porn files were found on his computer and more than half of them featured children and even babies.
