Hours after 22 suspected pedophiles were arrested in various raids throughout Israel, the Israel Police cleared for publication that a female police officer who posed as a 13-year-old girl and talked with the suspects online was part of the investigation. Four of the suspects will remain in police custody for four additional days. "The Israel Police seduced the suspects," a lawyer for one of the suspects claimed.

Dozens of police officers raided the homes of the 22 suspects early Tuesday morning. Aside from taking the suspects into custody, the officers confiscated their personal computers and cell phones. Additional evidence from the homes was collected.
