Chile parents urge action in school sex probe

Parents of alleged victims say investigation failing, citing cover-ups by religious schools.

    The Chilean government has launched an investigation into allegations that thousands of children have been sexually harassed in more than 60 schools, many of which are religious Christian ones, in the capital Santiago.

    But parents of alleged victims of the abuse have launch continued protests, saying the probe appears to be going nowhere. 

    Some say a key part of the problem is that many religious schools are trying to cover up the cases to protect their reputations.
