Bosnia police seize porn images from hacker

Bosnian police have discovered around 1.5 million pornographic images of children on the computer of a man they suspect of blackmailing United States citizens.

Police said Thursday that the man from Sarajevo _ identified only by his initials E.S. _ used "highly sophisticated" computer programs to illegally access email accounts of unidentified U.S. citizens to copy child porn material and bank cards details from their email accounts.

They said that the suspect used the material to blackmail money from the Americans. As a result, he received several online money transfers amounting to some $3,000.
