FILE - In this Sept. 15, 2014, file photo, U.N. peace keeping troops take part in a ceremony in the capital city of Bangui, Central African Republic (CAR), to take over a regional African peacekeeping mission. In CAR, a dozen allegations of sexual misconduct have been received since the mission there was established in April 2014, the peacekeeping office in New York says.  Stretched for resources with a record number of peacekeepers in the field, the U.N. has hesitated to upset member states by announcing the countries whose troops or police are accused of wrongdoing, until now. Last week, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon announced his intention to do so. (AP Photo, File)
