The priest abuse scandal is an international one, according to a report to be published by the Dallas Morning News. Between 100 and 200 Catholic clergy around the world were moved from country to country after they faced criminal charges or serious allegations of sex offenses against minors, the newspaper's 18-month investigation finds. NPR's Steve Inskeep talks to Dallas Morning News reporter Brooks Egerton.
