LONDON — Pope Benedict XVI met Saturday with five people who were molested by priests as children and apologized to them, even as abuse survivors and thousands of people opposed to his visit marched in central London in the biggest protest of his five-year papacy.

Benedict met for about 30-40 minutes with the victims at the Vatican's apostolic nunciature in Wimbledon and prayed with them, according to the Vatican and Bill Kilgallon, chairman of the National Catholic Safeguarding Commission — a church group that organized the encounter.

Benedict "expressed his deep sorrow and shame over what victims and their families had suffered," according to a Vatican statement.
