 The Vatican has recalled the papal envoy to the Dominican Republic as authorities in the Caribbean country investigate rumors of alleged child sex abuse.

A statement from a Vatican spokesman says a church investigation was under way of the papal nuncio, Archbishop Josef Wesolowski.

The statement Wednesday from Rev. Federico Lombardi did not specify the nature of the accusations against the Polish-born prelate.
