”Young girls in Liberia are still being sexually exploited by aid workers and peacekeepers despite pledges to stamp out such abuse, Save the Children says.
Girls as young as eight are being forced to have sex in exchange for food by workers for local and international agencies, according to its report.
The agency says such abuse is becoming more common as people displaced by the civil war return to their villages.”
This horrific behavior was first revealed four years ago, and two years ago the scope of the problem became common knowledge, thanks to a series of reports in the British newspaper The Independent. Since then, the UN has repeatedly promised to clean house and to put an end to a practice they themselves define as both a war crime and a form of genocide. Two years later and God knows how many victims later, the UN still says it is "investigating".
Can anyone name anything that the UN has done in the last ten years that has actually been beneficial to anyone?
