Pennsylvania's State Attorney General Josh Shapiro said the Vatican knew of a cover-up of child sex abuse. He claims there were secret archives that bishops in the state shared with church leaders in Rome.

The Bishops systematically denied the sexual abuse of thousands of children over a 70-year period. Reuters says the cases were secretly documented and sent to the Vatican.

Shapiro first made the allegations against the Vatican during an Aug. 14 news conference.
