France's most senior Roman Catholic cleric, Cardinal Philippe Barbarin, has been handed a six-month suspended sentence for his role in covering up the sexual abuse of minors.


Cardinal Barbarin was found guilty of not reporting allegations of assaults by a priest in the 1980s and 1990s.


He denied the charges and his lawyers say he will appeal against the verdict.
