Irish justice minister 'revolted' by Church child abuse

Irish Justice Minister Dermot Ahern has pledged to bring to justice Roman Catholic priests who abused children.

A damning report into clerical child abuse in the Dublin archdiocese has criticised the Catholic Church hierarchy for covering up the abuse.

The report investigated how Church and state authorities handled allegations of child abuse against 46 priests.
