Man arrested over child porn in Perth

A Malaysian national has been arrested and charged after Australian Border Force officers allegedly found child porn on his mobile phone at Perth International Airport.

The 36-year-old was stopped for a baggage examination after he arrived on a flight from Kuala Lumpur on Friday, with officers allegedly finding "abhorrent" material.

The man was due to appear in Perth Magistrates Court on Saturday and has had his phone seized and visitor's visa cancelled.
