    UN urges Vatican to live up to Pope's Francis vow to stamp out child sex abuse

    All Holy See officials must “stop and sanction” abuse if made aware of alleged violations

    A UN watchdog urged the Vatican on Friday to live up to Pope Francis' vow to stamp out child sex abuse by priests, calling on the Church to ensure violators face justice. Three weeks after grilling the Vatican at a public hearing, the UN Committee Against Torture said the Roman Catholic Church had made progress, but said there are still failings of major concern.
