Royals lodge complaint

LONDON -- Lawyers for Britain's Royal Family will make a criminal complaint against the photographer who took pictures of Prince William's wife, Kate, sunbathing topless in the south of France.

William's office said the couple's lawyers will file the complaint with French prosecutors on Monday against the unknown photographer or photographers. The palace said it will be up to prosecutors to decide whether to investigate and pursue the complaint.

Last week, France's Closer magazine published paparazzi snaps of Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge, sunbathing topless during a holiday in Provence.

The couple's lawyers are suing Closer's publisher, Mondadori, in a bid to prevent further publication of the pictures. Mondadori also owns Italy's Chi magazine, which says it will publish 26 pages of the images on Monday.

U.S. Scouts hid molesters

LOS ANGELES -- Over two decades, the Boy Scouts of America failed to report hundreds of alleged child molesters to police and often hid the allegations from parents and the public.

A Los Angeles Times review of 1,600 confidential files dating from 1970 to 1991 found scouting officials frequently urged admitted offenders to resign -- and helped many cover their tracks.

Volunteers and employees suspected of abuse were allowed to leave citing bogus reasons such as business demands, "chronic brain dysfunction" and duties at a Shakespeare festival.

The details are in confidential "perversion files," a blacklist of alleged molesters the Scouts have used internally since 1919. The Scouts' lawyers in the U.S. have been fighting in court to keep the files from public view.
