UN peacekeepers told to use more force, despite history of sexual abuses and cover-ups

A UN panel has recommended peacekeeping troops be allowed use force in an effort to address concerns about increasing fatalities, however the report fails to address concerns leveled against the troops themselves.

Close to 200 UN peacekeeping personnel have been killed in acts of violence, largely in Africa, in the last five years, 90 percent of whom served in their nation’s military. During this time, the UN’s mission has also been accused of sexual violence, prisoner deaths and cover-ups.
