Paris: French prosecutors on Tuesday opened a preliminary investigation into new allegations of sexual abuse against French UN peacekeeping soldiers based in the Central African Republic, a judiciary source said.

The prosecutors' office said the alleged acts took place in the eastern town of Dekoa between 2013 and 2015. The United Nations revealed the accusations last week.
