Vatican revises rules on sex abuse

Stung by child abuse claims, Roman Catholic Church sets new guidelines to deal with them.

    The Vatican has revised its guidelines on how the Roman Catholic Church will handle sex abuse cases.

    The rules include a significant lengthening of the time period a victim can lodge an abuse complaint.

    The latest policies follow a new series of allegations against the church's clergy in recent months.
