U.N. Sex Crimes In Congo

Michelle Malkin reported last month on the shocking results of the U.N. Office of Internal Oversight Services’ findings a wide-spread sexual exploitation and rapes of teenage girls by U.N. peacekeeping forces in Congo.

This evening ABC’s 20/20 aired a report showing that the situation, despite the claims of U.N. administrators, has not improved. Senior U.N. officials were secretly recorded consorting with prostitutes and even loading them in U.N. vehicles.

The range of sexual abuse includes reported rapes of young Congolese girls by U.N. troops; an Internet pedophile ring run from Congo by Didier Bourguet, a senior U.N. official from France; a colonel from South Africa accused of molesting his teenage male translators; and estimates of hundreds of underage girls having babies fathered by U.N. soldiers who have been able to simply leave their children and their crimes behind.

Read the rest of 20/20 corespondent Brian Ross’ story.

This isn’t a new problem for the U.N either.

Update: Michelle Malkin has more on the story.
