Twenty-one priests in Philadelphia have been suspended over allegations of child molestation. Cardinal Justin Rigali of Philadelphia said the 21 Roman Catholic priests were put on leave while their cases were being reviewed.
37 priests were identified as suspects in a grand jury report released last month following widespread claims of child molestation. The jurors also found that a panel set up by the archdiocese of Philadelphia was established mostly in the interest of the church. [BBC News]
