2 ask pope to investigate Buffalo diocese sex abuse


AMHERST, N.Y. – (AP) — Two people who say they were sexually abused as teenagers are asking Pope Francis to investigate the way the Diocese of Buffalo handled their complaints.

The alleged victims are expected to detail their request during a press conference at their attorney’s office Tuesday morning.
