Pope Francis Friday accepted the resignations of two more bishops from Chile, which is investigating cases of sexual abuse by the clergy, the Vatican said.

Chilean prosecutors said last month they were looking into 119 cases related to the sexual abuse of minors since 1960, adding that 167 bishops, priests and lay members of the Catholic Church were being investigated.
