An all-male cybersex den, believed to be part of a larger human trafficking ring that recruits young men and women for sex on webcams with paying customers, was raided by police in the Philippines on Tuesday.
Cybersex has been declared illegal in the Philippines, where the proliferation of cybersex dens has been used to justify a cybercrime law that would give authorities sweeping powers of arrest and imprisonment for anyone circulating lewd material online. The Supreme Court suspended the law in October last year after it was attacked by journalists and bloggers. Photo: AP
