Sexual exploitation of local populations by members of United Nations peacekeeping forces is “quite common but underreported,”according to a draft report by a UN internal oversight office.
The report, to be released later this month by the UN’s Office of Internal Oversight Services (OIOS), claims that peacekeepers routinely pay for sex with cash, cellphones, perfume, and other items, taking advantage of women who are struggling with hunger and poverty or who are seeking to improve their lifestyle.

UPDATE: TLC announced today it has pulled 19 Kids and Counting from its schedule. The move comes less than 24 hours after news broke of sexual misconduct allegations against Josh Duggar, the oldest son of the clan portrayed in the popular reality television series.
In a statement, TLC said it was troubled and saddened by what it called a "heartbreaking situation" and said its "thoughts and prayers" were with the family and the victims.
