A SPANISH friar has been arrested as part of an investigation into an alleged paedophile ring.
The 48-year-old, from Malaga, is accused of planning to kidnap children and drug them before subjecting them to sadistic sex acts.
The 18-month investigation was launched following an anonymous tip-off and has so far led to the arrest of eight people throughout Spain.
The friar, who worked at a welfare centre, has been released on bail.
Is that a recent photo of him?
Cheers Alcalde – that made me chuckle.
