(Newser) – Interpol has launched a worldwide appeal for help in tracking down a man suspected of sexually abusing young boys, the BBC reports. Pictures of the man abusing boys 6 to 10 years old in Southeast Asia were found on the hard drive of a convicted pedophile in Norway. Police think the images date from around 2000-01. A similar appeal last year led to the quick arrest of another high-profile suspect.

"We are now asking the public to help identify this predator and protect other potential victims from abuse," said a top Interpol official.
