Ban Ki-moon

In this Aug. 13, 2015 file photo provided by the United Nations, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, center, speaks with U.N. Special Representatives, Force Commanders and Police Commissioners in all U.N. peacekeeping operations during a video conference at U.N. headquarters. Widespread relief greeted the resignation of Babacar Gaye, the head of the peacekeeping mission in Central Africa Republic, over the force’s handling of dozens of misconduct allegations, including rape and killing. 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, Ban announced his intention to do so. (Eskinder Debebe/United Nations via AP, File)
