The "real number" of victimized children and abusive priests might be higher since some secret church records were lost and some victims never came forward, the grand jury said in the report that is the largest of its kind in the United States.

Many Swedes were horrified in early 2017 when U.S. President Donald Trump linked immigration to rising crime in Sweden.
