The Vatican was denounced in a devastating UN report Wednesday for failing to stamp out child abuse and the church was urged to remove all clergy suspected of raping or molesting children.

It urged the Holy See to “immediately remove all known and suspected child sexual abusers from assignment and refer the matter to the relevant law enforcement authorities for investigation and prosecution purposes”.
