(Scroll down for video) Police have busted a group of about 100 teenagers, who were uploading inappropriate selfies to the Internet.

It all began when a man was horrified when he found that his daughter had uploaded a nude photo of herself on the Internet.

Police in Virginia, learned that she was part of a ring of girls, who upload nude photos and videos of themselves.
Officers found that most of the girls are between 14 and 15 years old.

Authorities said that the teens involved are probably unaware that they have broken child pornograghy laws, which prohibits the transmission of sexually explicit photographs of minors.

The girls might not understand the severity of the actions, as they can never remove it from the Internet and they have no idea who sees the images and videos.

Officials found more than 1,000 sexually explicit photos and videos that were shared over the group’s private Instagram accounts.

Police have so far seized cellphones from 23 people in connection to the bust.
