Man who targeted girls with nude photos arrested

BEIRUT: The police arrested a man Friday suspected of harassing minors on the Internet and blackmailing them into having sexual relations with him. 

A statement by the Internal Security Forces said they arrested a suspect in his early 30s identified only by his initials, A.A. 

During the interrogation, the suspect confessed to contacting some 30 minors through Facebook, pretending to be a girl their age. 

He would lure them into taking nude photographs and videos, only to use them as blackmail, saying he would publish the pictures if they didn’t have sexual relations with him.
