MEXICO CITY - Officials say that 60 people have been arrested in an operation against child pornography in 10 Latin American countries, as well as Spain and the United States.

Mexico's federal government said in a statement Sunday that "Operation Without Borders" involved 97 raids in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Spain, the United States, Guatemala, Mexico, Paraguay, Uruguay and Venezuela. The statement said officials rescued three girls, aged 9, 14 and 15, who were allegedly used to make pornographic videos.

The videos were broadcast on the Internet, through email or on social networks. Computers and smartphones were seized. The statement said the FBI aided the operation.
