    Pope Francis is being urged by campaigners to return to his homeland to deal with revelations of child sexual abuse committed by Roman Catholic clergy.

    Two international campaign organisations are in Argentina to meet the victims.

    They are also calling for clergy involved in abuse to be removed from office and to be prosecuted.
