Spanish clergy sexual abused over 200,000 children, probe estimates


Over 200,000 minors are estimated to have been sexually abused in Spain by the Roman Catholic clergy since 1940, according to an independent commission published Friday. The report did not give a specific figure but said a poll of over 8,000 people found that 0.6 percent of Spain's adult population of around 39 million people said they had suffered sexual abuse by members of the clergy when they were still children. FRANCE 24's Sarah Morris reports from Madrid, Spain.
