The FBI has arrested three men charged with extorting money by way of e-mail from people across the country who visited a child-pornography Web site.

Thirty-one-year-old Robert Walker of Oldham County; Harvey Holder, originally from Irvine and 23-year-old Lamont Cordaro, originally from Cleveland, Ohio, were arrested Tuesday in suburban Louisville.

The FBI reports the men are also charged with conspiracy and are accused of hacking into their victims' computers and demanding money from the victims.
