Police say part of a website containing child pornography was shut down after it used Facebook pictures of teenage girls from dozens of high schools. Police say the site showed pictures of 17 girls from Bay Path Regional Vocational Technical High School in Charlton and other Massachusetts schools. David Papagni, superintendent and director of Bay Path, said parents alerted school officials. The photos of the fully clothed girls contained information that could be used to identify them. The website is hosted in Ohio, but its servers are in Eastern Europe. The FBI says it is reviewing the situation. (AP)
