On the Radar: Violence against Congress, McCain-Palin, Iraq

A giant cross overshadows St. Peters Square at the Vatican on March 25.

Here’s a look at some of the stories reporters are working on Friday:

Church Abuse - We follow the global story of Catholic church abuse with the reactions around the world from several archbishops and stories looking at how much the Vatican knew about the alleged abuse and when. Friday the Catholic Archdiocese in Munich, Germany, denied a report that the Pope knew a priest convicted of abusing minors was back at work. On the same day, French bishops wrote a letter saying they felt "shame and regret for the abominable acts" by some priests in the Catholic church. The Catholic Archbishop of Westminster called the child abuse committed within the church "totally unacceptable" and said he was ashamed of what happened.

McCain and Palin on the trail again - Sen. John McCain is running for re-election and for the first time in nearly 20 years is facing a tough challenge from J.D. Hayworth. When he hits the campaign trail this weekend, there will be a familiar face alongside him - Sarah Palin.  The pair will be at an event in Tucson, Arizona, at 3:30 p.m. on Friday.
