Cardinal Pell found guilty of child sex abuse

In Australia the most senior Roman Catholic official in the world to be tried on child sex abuse charges has been found guilty. A legal order banning reporting of Cardinal George Pell's conviction last year has been lifted, after further charges against him were dropped. He's appealing the verdict.
