LONDON — Child abuse investigators in Britain, the U.S. and Australia have dismantled an organized crime group that streamed live webcam footage of child sexual abuse from the Philippines for paying viewers around the world.

An international investigation broke up the ring, which abused impoverished children as young as 6, Britain’s National Crime Agency said today. Authorities made 29 arrests, including 11 people in the Philippines. Some were members of the children’s families.
