Child Sex Abuse

Activists in Poland pull down a statue of a prominent deceased priest, Father Henryk Jankowski, who allegedly abused minors sexually, in Gdansk, Poland. The activists said it was an act of protest against the Polish Catholic Church for failing in resolving the problem of clergy sex abuse. The protest comes as Pope Francis has gathered church leaders from around the world at the Vatican to grapple with the church's sex abuse crisis.

A boy comes down from the terrace of a house where a 15-year-old girl was set on fire after being raped at Tigri village, near Noida, a suburb . The girl is fighting for her life in a New Delhi hospital. The attack is just one of several recently reported cases of rape against women or children in India — underlining the persistence of such violence despite a public outcry three years ago that led to stronger laws to prevent sexual assault.

A general view of the BBC headquarters in London. The head of the BBC's governing body said the broadcaster needs a radical overhaul following the resignation of its chief executive in wake of a scandal over a botched report on child sex-abuse allegations. Chris Patten vowed to restore confidence and trust in the BBC, which is reeling from the resignation of George Entwistle and the scandals prompting his ouster. Entwistle resigned Saturday night amid a storm of controversy after a news program wrongly implicated a British politician in a child sex-abuse scandal, deepening a crisis sparked by revelations it decided not to air similar allegations against one of its own stars.

In a shocking case of child abuse, a two-year-old girl with her head smashed, arms broken, face branded with hot iron and human bite marks all over her body is battling for life at AIIMS, New Delhi. The child, whose parents are untraced, is undergoing treatment at the neurosurgery ICU of AIIMS trauma centre and has been put on ventilator support after suffering two cardiac arrests in the past few days, said Dr Deepak Aggarwal. A senior police official said the child was admitted to the hospital by a 15-year-old girl who claimed to be her mother and told hospital authorities that the baby was injured in a fall from bed. The claim was rejected by doctors who said that her version does not match with the grievous injuries on the child's body.
