All 34 Chilean bishops who attended a crisis meeting this week with Pope Francis about the cover-up of sexual abuse in their country have offered to resign, it has emerged.

The bishops also apologised to Chile, the victims of abuse and the church for the scandal as they released an extraordinary joint statement.

It was not immediately clear if the pope had accepted their resignation.
