Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has given a national apology to victims of child sexual abuse.
Hundreds of people gathered in Canberra on Monday to hear Mr Morrison deliver the emotional address in parliament.
It follows a five-year inquiry which found tens of thousands of children had suffered abuse in the nation’s institutions over decades.
“Today, we finally acknowledge and confront the lost screams of our children,” he said.
“We must be so humble to fall before those who were forsaken and beg to them our apology.”
