Vatican attacks media over abuse

Officials hit back over claims Benedict XVI failed to act over US priest accused of abuse.

    The Vatican has hit back at the media after allegations in a US newspaper that accused Pope Benedict XVI of failing to act over the alleged abuse of 200 deaf boys by a priest. 

    The claims come less than a week after the pope apologised for the abuse of children by the clergy in Ireland. 

    Laurence Lee reports from London and Sami Zeidan interviews Peter Jennings, the former press secretary to the Archbishop of Westminster.
