UN Peacekeepers Fathered "Thousands of Babies" With Young Girls They Raped in Africa

A new investigation into the disgusting behavior of UN peacekeepers in the Democratic Republic of the Congo has confirmed twenty years of widespread sexual misconduct that destroyed thousands of lives.

Victims say they were trafficked, raped, impregnated, and abandoned without child support.

Since 1999, the US has deployed troops to the Congo, where they are currently serving in the "Monusco" UN mission. The new report was more comprehensive than the previous one, interviewing roughly 2,500 people, including women and girls who had been raped by the peacekeepers and the children who were the result of those crimes.
