Pope Francis asks forgiveness for child abuse by clergy

Pope Francis asks forgiveness for child abuse by clergy
Pope Francis has asked for forgiveness for the "evil" damage to children caused by sexual abusers in the clergy. He said the abuse was a "moral damage carried out by men of the Church", and that "sanctions" would be imposed. The statement, made in a meeting with a child rights group, is being described as his strongest the issue so far. Last month, Pope Francis strongly defended the Roman Catholic Church's record on tackling sexual abuse by priests, following UN criticism. The Pope set up a committee last year to organise help for victims of clerical sexual abuse but has been accused by some Catholics of dragging his feet in acknowledging the extent of the moral and mental damage caused by paedophile priests, the BBC's David Willey reports from Rome.

US urges countries to help Ukraine's economic rescue

US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew has urged other countries to contribute more to the economic rescue of Ukraine. He told the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that Ukraine's "sizeable financing needs" meant other nations must add to its $1bn (£597m, 720m euros) loan guarantee. The appeal came as Ukraine's interim prime minister offered to devolve more powers to eastern regions. "The United States is bolstering the IMF program through a complementary aid package, which includes a $1bn loan guarantee and additional technical assistance," Mr Lew said in a statement to the IMF.

'Hitler cups' recalled in Germany over Nazi stamp

'Hitler cups' recalled in Germany over Nazi stamp
A German furniture store chain has apologised for selling mugs with Adolf Hitler's face on them. The ceramic cups feature a faint image of a Nazi-era postage stamp with Hitler's profile on it, postmarked with a swastika stamp. The mug also features a rose and handwriting in English. The Zurbrueggen furniture chain apologised for the "terrible" mistake, which it blamed on "a stupid chain of unfortunate circumstances". The cups' Chinese designer had mistakenly chosen the image of the former dictator, it said, which the chain then ordered in error 5,000 of them. "No one noticed the problem during unpacking," the company's owner told the Neue Westfaelische Zeitung daily newspaper. The small chain sold 175 of the mugs before anyone drew attention to the black and white profile of the world's most infamous Nazi. The chain claim to have destroyed the unsold cups.
