Prosecutors said Wednesday they were probing Germany's top archbishop on suspicion of abetting child abuse, in the case of a man who said he was molested with the clergyman's knowledge in the 1960s.

German Episcopal Conference chief Robert Zollisch was being investigated for allegedly turning a blind eye to the abuse by a priest, public prosecutor Wolfgang Maier said in the southern city of Freiburg.
