Former Pope Benedict XVI dies aged 95 - BBC News

Former Pope Benedict XVI has died at his Vatican residence, aged 95, almost a decade after he stood down.

For much of his papacy, the Catholic Church faced allegations, legal claims and official reports into decades of child abuse by priests.

Earlier this year the former Pope acknowledged that errors had been made in the handling of abuse cases while he was archbishop of Munich between 1977 and 1982. - 12/31/2022.
