(The Guardian) –  The UN secretary general, Ban Ki-moon, has fired the head of the agency’s peacekeeping mission in Central African Republic after multiple sex abuse allegations against peacekeeping troops. Ban pledged to take urgent action to weed out the “outrageous and indecent actions of a few people” as he announced the resignation of Babacar Gaye, from Senegal. “I cannot put into words how anguished, angered and ashamed I am by recurrent reports over the years of sexual exploitation and abuse by UN forces,” Ban said.
