Church abuse victims seek justice

As a priest suspected of abuse is arrested in Italy, a victim narrates his search for justice.

    Italian police have arrested a 40-year-old priest for allegedly attempting to sexually abuse a 10-year-old girl.

    The incident took place in December 2009 when the priest, known only as David T, went to the girl's home and found her alone.

    The priest, who is of Indian origin, was arrested upon his return from a trip to India.

    The arrest will give other victims some hope that molesters will eventually be brought to justice.

    Recently the Vatican has been accused of covering-up the abuses, making it difficult to investigate the crimes.

    Al Jazeera spoke to one victim who decided to gather his own proof in attempt to find justice.
