An investigation has been launched in the Central African Republic, by the United Nations peacekeeping mission, MINUSCA, following allegations that a UN peacekeeper had sexually abused a young girl.

The mission said it learned about the alleged assault in the eastern part of the country earlier in the week.

In the capital Bangui, Maha Fayek asked Diane Corner, the Deputy Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General in the country about the allegations.
