VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope Francis will meet victims of clergy sexual abuse during his visit to Ireland this weekend, the Vatican said on Tuesday.

Spokesman Greg Burke told reporters at a briefing on the Aug. 25-26 trip that the meeting will not be announced until after it is over and that it will be up to the victims if they want to speak afterwards.
