Catholic abuse inquiry to report

The findings of a ten-year inquiry into the abuse of children by Catholic orders in Ireland are to be published.

The report is expected to be highly critical of the Church's handling of sex abuse complaints and to reveal horrific levels of violence and cruelty which took place over the past 60 years.

Mark Simpson reports.
