Westering home raided in clamp on alleged syndicate involved in violent abuse of babies

NEIGHBOURS of a quiet Port Elizabeth couple watched in stunned disbelief as Belgian and South African police raided their rundown house and confiscated 15 hard drives allegedly containing violent child pornography.

The Westering pair have been linked to an international child pornography ring that distributes shocking footage of the rape, torture and murder of newborns and babies still in nappies.

Investigations into the porn ring led in January to the arrest of a Plettenberg Bay man linked to the same network.

The Westering couple were arrested yesterday following a two-week sting operation.
