UK    CHURCH 'MUST APOLOGISE' FOR CHILD ABUSE
More than 100 demonstrators in London who say they were victims of child abuse within the Catholic Church are planning a protest march.
    They aim to walk in silence to the official residence of the Archbishop of Westminster, Cormac Murphy O'Connor, to demand recognition of their suffering.
    The organisers, Survivors of Spiritual Abuse, want an "unconditional apology" from the church for the actions of paedophile priests,said a spokeswoman.
    Their anger was sparked by recent allegations of a church cover-up of the paedophile activities of a priest at Gatwick airport.
    The protesters will carry a scroll with the names of more than 1300 fellow victims.
    Demands for the archbishop's resignation were made last month over his admission that he knew of the paedophile activity of a priest but still gave him work as a chaplain.
