Tuesday, 30 Mar 2010 09:04 AM


The Roman Catholic Church in Germany is launching a telephone hotline for victims of sexual abuse.

The helpline will be run from the western city of Trier. Its bishop has been appointed to handle any allegations made against clergy.

Hundreds of people have come forward saying they were abused by priests as children between the 1950s and 1980s.

The Pope has been accused of failing to act against a suspected sex abuser when he was archbishop of Munich.
