More than 100 child sex abuse lawsuits have now been filed against the Catholic church on Guam.

An abuse scandal has consumed the church on the island, where about 85 percent of the population is Catholic.

The Pacific Daily News reported that two more lawsuits were filed on Friday, accusing two former priests of abuse in the 1970s.

One of the plaintiffs claimed a former priest, Louis Brouillard, who faces 58 other cases, abused him on scout camps.

The other accused a different priest, Antonio Cruz, who has since died, of abusing him when he was an altar boy.

The C
atholic church now faces 101 lawsuits on Guam, demanding more than $US655 million in damages.
