British police investigating the death of a teenager who took his own life after being blackmailed by strangers online have been involved in a major international operation targeting cyber-crime in the Philippines.
Daniel Perry, 17, from Dunfermline in Fife, died in July last year after falling victim to an alleged "sextortion" attempt, in which internet users are lured into webcam chats and then blackmailed with the footage.
Inquiries by detectives from Police Scotland revealed an electronic online trail, which led to the Philippines and links to organised crime groups there. More than 50 people have been arrested in a series of raids, according to Philippine authorities in an operation codenamed Strikeback.
