Bishops criticised in report urged to step down

AN open letter to the Pope on behalf of abuse victims has called on all bishops who engaged in a cover-up of abuse to resign immediately -- and not wait for the verdict of any future reports.

The signatories also urged Pope Benedict to remove Bishop Martin Drennan from office, saying he still refused to accept responsibility for the culture of cover-up which was highlighted in the Murphy report.
