Pope to meet child sex abuse survivors

Pope Francis is expected to meet six survivors of clerical sex abuse today, including two from Ireland.

It marks the first time the Pontiff has met sex abuse survivors.

The group, which also includes two British and two German victims, will attend mass at the Pope's residence this morning ahead of the meeting.

The service will also be attended by members of the Vatican's new Child Protection Commission - including Irish campaigner Marie Collins.
