A 90-year-old Australian man was arrested and charged with raping four young sisters whom he allegedly lured to his home in Thailand with the promise of sweets and English lessons.

Karl Joseph Kraus was taken into custody Tuesday at his home near the northern city of Chiang Mai. Cops found video footage and 100 photographs of naked children, some posing with the elderly man.

Only now (near the end of a very long life) is he arrested. Also, it's impossible not to see in all of this ugliness a reflection of old Europe's long exploitation of the poor, underdeveloped, but resource-rich countries of the world.
