The child pornography distributed over the Internet, allegedly by four Israelis arrested for this crime on Monday, included films of three-year-old children being raped, according to the police.
According to police, the suspects - the first ever to be arrested for "online pedophilia" in Israel - earned hefty profits by posting pedophile footage they either purchased or made themselves in an Internet archive that required users to pay to have access.
All four suspects will be brought for a remand hearing today. In addition to Biran, they include Itai Snapir, 25, of Tel Aviv and Rafael Kaplanovksy, 23, of Jerusalem. A gag order has been imposed on the fourth man's name.
