Pope Francis has refused to respond to claims by a former Vatican diplomat who has called on him to resign.

The former Archbishop and Vatican ambassador to the US, Carlo Maria Vigano, also accused the Pope of covering up reports of sexual abuse by a US cardinal, report CNN and the BBC.

He said that he told the Pope about allegations of sexual abuse against high-profile American Cardinal Theodore McCarrick five years ago, but that the Pontiff did nothing about it.

McCarrick, 88, who once led the Archdiocese of Washington and was a force in American politics, resigned last month after a decades-old allegation of sexual abuse of a teenage altar boy. The Pope also ordered McCarrick's suspension from public ministry.
