EXCERPTS:

VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI on Saturday accepted the resignation of a German bishop under investigation for sexual abuse, the latest high-profile resignation since a sexual abuse crisis erupted in the Roman Catholic Church.

Through a lawyer, Bishop Mixa, 69, denied the accusations, which date to his time as bishop in the Bavarian town of Eichstätt from 1996 to 2005, The Augsburger Allgemeine said.
