Vatican to send investigator to German school

Vatican to send investigator to German school

A Roman Catholic school in Germany that has faced allegations of sexual abuse by two of its priests has asked the Vatican for help in its investigation.
The Ettal Monastery boarding school said Thursday that the Vatican had confirmed it would send an inspector to look into accusations of sexual abuse made by 20 alumni of the school.
Munich prosecutors last week opened an investigation into allegations of abuse against one member of the Benedictine-run school. The second priest who accused of sexual abuse has since died.
At least 170 victims have reported sexual abuse in a widening scandal involving allegations against priests at several Catholic high schools across Germany.
Ettal is located in Pope Benedict XVI's native region of Bavaria.
