United Nations peacekeepers facing sexual abuse accusations may be packing their bags after a recent U.N. resolution.
There were 99 sexual assault allegations against U.N. peacekeepers and other U.N. personnel in 2015.
The issue drew attention last summer after media received a leaked report documenting assaults between 2008 and 2013. The U.N. started an investigation, even though technically peacemakers' home countries are supposed to investigate.
