Sao Paulo - A Roman Catholic priest was arrested and charged with paedophilia on Saturday after police allegedly found him abusing four teenage boys at a hotel in northeastern Brazil, authorities said.

Felix Barbosa Carreiro was taken into custody after an anonymous tip led police to the hotel where Carreiro was allegedly abusing the teenagers, police officer Ana Carla Fernandes Silvestre said.

Carreiro, who did not resist the arrest, headed a small parish in the city of Sao Luis.

He admitted going out with the teenagers, but denied having sexual relations with them.
