Increase in abuse claims to inquiry

The head of a Dutch inquiry into child abuse in the Catholic church school system says yearly complaints are up 100-fold since allegations emerged of worldwide abuse.

Wim Deetman said that between 1995 and 2009 an average of 20 people each year complained that they had been abused, but in the past year 2,000 people made such allegations.
