“It is one of the biggest known seizures in Spain and surrounding countries of paedophiliac material in the possession of one person who shared it,” a spokesman for the Civil Guard told AFP.

The man “had a collection of 846,000 picture and video files in which minors appeared, many of them younger than 13, being victims of physical and sexual violence, including acts related to bestiality and sadomasochism”, a police statement said.

The suspect has been charged with possessing and distributing child pornography on the Internet, it added.

“He also had a manual of 170 pages, written in English, with advice on searching for minors and techniques for abusing them without being detected,” police said.

Officers raided the man’s homes in Madrid and the northern city of Valladolid, after a tip-off from the US Department of Homeland Security which had detected a user in Spain exchanging child porn by email, the statement added.

According to Spanish news agency EFE, the uproar caused by the furious youngsters alerted police in the area of what was happening.

Upon being arrested, the Spanish citizen denied raping the child but later admitted having carried out the sexual attack.

His victim also confirmed he had been sexually abused.

The man is due to appear in a Marrakech court on Friday.

Under Moroccan criminal law, sex offenders are punished by up to 30 years in prison.

Local online daily Moroccan World News reported there has been a recent increase in sexual attacks on minors in the North African country.

The most recent ruling on July 17th sentenced a 57-year-old paedophile to only two years in prison after he was caught sexually abusing a 10-year-old child.

The case last year of a convicted Spanish paedophile who was pardoned by Morocco's King led to protests across the North African country.
