ATHENS, Greece—Greek authorities say they have charged five men — including two policemen — with allegedly paying to watch on their computers as men in the Philippines sexually abused children as young as six months old.

A police statement Friday said the Greek men were identified following a tip-off from Interpol, which is conducting a global investigation into live streaming of child pornography over the internet.
