A Norwegian man faces charges of trafficking and abusing at least six young boys during several trips to Thailand. According to police reports, the 47-year-old man had posted advertisements on the Internet seeking contact with young boys. Norwegian police raided his apartment in Oslo and seized about 35,000 pedophilic photos and hundreds of films. The trafficking charges were linked to one case in which a young boy was abused by two other men in an apartment the man owned in Bangkok. If convicted on all counts, the man could face a 21-year jail term.
