Pope to meet sex abuse victims at Vatican

Pope Francis has announced he will meet a group of sex abuse victims next month after comparing the "ugly crime" to performing "a satanic Mass".

Speaking after his Middle East tour, Pope Francis said he would show zero tolerance towards anyone in the Roman Catholic Church who abuses children.

Kate Walmsley, who was abused, told the BBC that the Catholic Church had "taken her childhood".
