This comes after an arrest warrant was issued for the leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army 17 years ago on 33 counts of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

The LRA launched an insurgency in Uganda in the 1990s, murdering, mutilating and abducting people, especially children and women.

The whereabouts of Kony are unclear, however the LRA has been active in Sudan and the Central African Republic.
