A judge in the southern Spanish city of Granada has charged ten Roman Catholic priests and two Catholic lay workers with child sex abuse.



The 12 are suspected of abusing four teenage boys between 2004 and 2007, the most serious offences occurring in a house used by the priests.



Pope Francis telephoned one of the alleged victims, now 24, in November to offer his apologies.



He acted after the man wrote him a letter about the alleged abuse.
