UN reports 31 new allegations of sexual abuse against peacekeepers, workers

The United Nations on Friday reported 31 new allegations of sexual abuse and exploitation against peacekeepers and civilians working for UN agencies in the three-month period from July and through September — almost half against those employed to help refugees.
     UN spokesperson Stephane Dujarric released the figures and said Secretary-General Antonio Guterres “is obviously disappointed and saddened that these actions continue.”
     The United Nations has been in the spotlight for several years over allegations of child rape and other sexual abuses by its peacekeepers, especially those based in Central African Republic and Congo.
