Italian priest accused of sexually abusing 20 boys

Irish Examiner

Italian authorities arrested a priest today and accused him of repeatedly abusing about 20 children from his parish south of Rome over more than a decade.

Officers picked up Father Marco Agostini at a youth hostel in the Umbrian town of Assisi where he had been transferred last year after spending a decade in the small town of Pomezia, said Alberto Intini, head of the crime squad at Rome’s police headquarters.
