This headline in the Huffington Post - WikiLeaks: UN Peacekeepers Traded Food For Sex – caught our interest in what has turned out to be a tale of horror involving Beninese Soldiers deployed by the UN in the Ivory Coast being involved in disturbing allegations that they gave food to starving young underage girls then the soldiers demanded sex after providing the food!
Here are official comments courtesy of a UN spokesman – quote - A random poll of 10 underage girls in Toulepleu by aid group Save The Children U.K. in 2009 found that eight performed sexual acts for Benin peacekeepers on a regular basis in order to secure their most basic needs. "Eight of the 10 said they had ongoing sexual relationships with Beninese soldiers in exchange for food or lodging."
It seems these allegations have been hushed up until now before being addressed by Wikileaks making the world aware that UN backed Beninese Soldiers have been giving food to young underage Ivory Coast girls then demanding sex as an illegal and immoral payment for the kindness they purported to offer!
