US urges investigation of UN over C. Africa child sex scandal

US Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power speaks at UN headquarters on January 22, 2015The US envoy to the United Nations called Friday for an independent investigation into how the world body handled claims that French soldiers raped children in Central Africa. US ambassador Samantha Power said the investigation should focus on how quickly the accusations were raised to the relevant authorities and how promptly they reacted, as well as the necessary anonymity provided to victims and witnesses. “We need this impartial investigation of the handling to be carried out swiftly,” she told reporters. According to the French defense ministry, soldiers dispatched to the chaos-ridden nation to restore order after a 2013 coup are implicated in an investigation into the alleged sexual abuse of several emaciated children there who had begged for food.
