ROME – Victims of child sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests demonstrated near the Vatican on last night, holding up placards demanding that the church punish those responsible for coverups and do more to protect children.

Some 75 victims and their supporters from the United States and several European countries had wanted to march to the Vatican with candles but were blocked by police because they did not have a permit.
