Pope Benedict XVI, cited in sexual abuse to International Criminal Court...
Pope accused of crimes against humanity by victims of sex abuse.

Victims' complaint to the international criminal court , accused Pope Benedict and three others of failing to prevent abusers.

The submission , lodged at The Hague on Tuesday , accuses the four men not only of failing to prevent or punish perpetrators of rape and sexual violence but also of engaging in the "systematic and widespread" practice of concealing sexual crimes around the world.

It includes individual cases of abuse where letters and documents between Vatican officials and others show a refusal to co-operate with law enforcement agencies seeking to pursue suspects , according to the Centre for Constitutional Rights (CCR) , a US-based organisation that represents the claimants.
