A French surgeon is suspected of sexually abusing around 250 children, including many while under anesthesia, in what is feared as the country's worst child sex scandal.
Joel Le Scouarnec, 66, a specialist in abdominal surgery, is said to have attacked young boys and girls for more than three decades and even to keep a diary of his hundreds of encounters.
In 2005 he was convicted of owning images of child sexual abuse, but the surgeon was allowed to continue practicing until his arrest in 2017.

The latest allegations arose during an investigation into claims that he had raped a four and six year old girl, according to The times.
Le Scouarnec, who worked at the Hospital de Jonzac in western France, denies having raped the two girls, but according to his lawyer has & # 39; deviant behavior & # 39; admitted with them.
During the investigation, the police raided his house and found a diary with detailed sexual attacks on about 250 children who were admitted to hospitals where he practiced.
According to the French magazine, this could be the & # 39; biggest pedophile affair ever in this country & # 39; L & # 39; Express.
Francesca Satta, a lawyer representing one of the alleged victims, said: & # 39; You open the diary and close it again immediately, the perversion is so huge. & # 39;
The abdominal surgeon is said to have attacked about 250 children and described each of the encounters in detail in his journal
Investigators have started to make contact with the people mentioned in the diary and many of them have said they did not know they were being attacked.
Le Scouarnec has admitted that he has sexually abused some children in hospitals, but denies all the actions described in his diary that he says are & # 39; fictional writings & # 39; to be.
After his arrest in 2005, he received a four-month suspended sentence and was allowed to continue practicing as a surgeon, and no order was given for him to undergo treatment.
In a meeting in his diary he wrote about his frustration after a young girl's parents had interrupted his chance to be alone with her.
The woman has since gone to see a psychologist after hearing the police meeting.
The test will take place late this year or early 2020.
