LONDON (AP) - British police say they have arrested 660 suspected pedophiles during a six-month operation.

The National Crime Agency says the investigation targeted Internet users with child abuse images - suspects who included doctors, teachers, Scout leaders and former police officers.

Deputy director general Phil Gormley said the crackdown was the biggest police operation of its kind in Britain. The agency says hundreds of children were "safeguarded" as a result of the information uncovered.

Britain has been rocked by a series of child abuse scandals in recent years since details emerged about the numerous sex crimes committed by the late BBC entertainer Jimmy Savile.
