The two priests accused in the first sexual abuse trial in Vatican history


Two Catholic priests went on trial in the Vatican, in what is the first lawsuit for an alleged case of sexual abuse in the city-state.

Gabriele Martinelli, 28, is accused of raping an altar boy between 2007 and 2012.

Enrico Radice, 72, is accused of covering up the alleged crime while he was rector of the school of theology where sexual abuse is said to have occurred.

Neither of them took a stand on the charges.
