Pope aide charged with child sex abuse


SYDNEY: Vatican finance chief Cardinal George Pell has been charged with multiple child sex offences in Australia, police said.

Pell, the country’s most senior Catholic cleric, was interviewed in Rome by Australian police last October over the allegations which he strongly denies.

“Victoria Police have charged Cardinal George Pell with historical sexual assault offences,” Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton told reporters Thursday, local time.
