    The United Nations has condemned the Catholic Church for failing to protect children from paedophile priests.
     
    It says the church is in denial about the scale of the problem and that clergy who abuse children are still being protected.
     
    The Vatican has responded saying the report is distorted but added it will study it thoroughly.
