The number of child porn web sites being blocked by order of police has doubled in the last six months. The blocked sites primarily show sexual posing, reports Swedish Radio P3.

Per-Åke Wecksell from the Swedish Police internet crime section says the children posing are between three and 12 years old, and that the pictures are very coarse.

Since the beginning of this year police have increased the number of blocked sites form 400 to near one thousand.

The organisation Ecpat, that works against child sex trade, says it too notices an increase in sites where money is made on sexual posing.

A finance coalition including banks and online payment companies have worked several years to stop payments to sites that spread pictures of children being sexually abused. But as that work is becoming more effective, a new market is growing with sites showing sexual posing.

And since sexual posing is considered child pornography according to Swedish law, the sites can be blocked.
