Pennsylvania grand jury: More than 1,000 victims in Catholic church sex abuse scandal

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The Latest on a grand jury report on clergy abuse in six Pennsylvania Roman Catholic dioceses:

A Pennsylvania grand jury says its investigation of clergy sexual abuse identified more than 1,000 child victims.

The grand jury report released Tuesday says that number comes from records in six Roman Catholic dioceses. The grand jury says it believes the "real number" of abused children might be "in the thousands" since some records were lost and victims were afraid to come forward. The report says more than 300 clergy committed the abuse over a period of decades.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro says the probe found a systematic cover-up by senior church officials in Pennsylvania and at the Vatican.
