More church officials come forward to admit abuse

A number of Catholic church officials have come forward to state they abused children in their care, following an appeal from the man in charge of the official investigation into the scandal.

But Wim Deetman refused to say how many people had reported themselves to the committee since he appealed for them to come forward on February 17. They have until April 4 to register.
Over 2,000 victims have already registered with the committee.
