    Pope Benedict XVI has moved a step closer to saying sorry for the scandal regarding the abuse of children by priests that has plagued the Roman Catholic church.

    Benedict begged for forgiveness from God and victims in front of thousands of priests and pledged to "do everything possible" to prevent future cases of abuse.

    However, it wasn't quite the apology that some had wanted.

    Sabina Castelfranco reports from Rome.
