The launch of a commission to investigate child sex abuse was welcomed by the principal of an Australian Jewish school whose students allegedly were victimized. Prime Minister Julia Gillard said Monday that the royal commission -- or public inquiry -- would look into children under the care of religious organizations and focus on the response of the institutions to the alleged sex abuse cases. She called child sex abuse "vile and evil."
