Humanitarian soldiers?

AMISOM troops are immune from prosecution in Somalia. It is the countries providing peacekeeping troops who are responsible for the conduct of their forces. They have exclusive jurisdiction over the personnel. Peacekeeping troops in Somalia used humanitarian aid to lure women and teenagers, who come to ask for medicine and food, and to rape them, HRW said . The victims often conceal it fearing reprisals, while the troops are immune from local prosecution.
