Australia 'sorry' for abuses

PM apologises over neglect of thousands of children in state-run homes.



    Kevin Rudd, the Australian prime minister, has delivered an apology to about half a million people who suffered abuse and neglect as children in state-run institutions.
     
    Among them are thousands of British child migrants sent to Australia with false promises of a happier life.
     
    The British prime minister is also expected to say sorry for the policy.
