In Brief: Man extrandited on child porn charges

A 53-year-old Australian national has been arrested by the Australian Federal Police at Brisbane Airport following his extradition from Cambodia on Friday. The man, who faces charges including accessing images of child abuse, was arrested by Cambodian authorities in May 2009 in line with a provisional arrest request made by the Australian authorities. According to a statement released by the federal police on Friday, arrest warrants were issued in December last year after police found as many as 140,000 images and 10,350 graphic child abuse videos at a residence in Daintree, North Queensland.
