Ugandan army seizes base of Lord's Resistance Army


BANGUI, Central African Republic (AP) — The Ugandan army destroyed a base of a key general of the Lord's Resistance Army in the Central African Republic.

Ugandan Army Colonel Milton Katarinyebwa said this week that it captured the headquarters of LRA General Dominic Ongwen, one of four Ugandan rebels wanted by the International Criminal Court.

The colonel denied reports that Ongwen was killed and said Ugandan forces will track him down.

The base was seized on August 24 in the Haut Mbomou area of southeastern Central African Republic.

Since December 2011, 100 members of the United States military have advised Ugandan and Central African Republic troops on how to fight Joseph Kony and other LRA members.

Since 2005, Ongwen has been wanted by the international court for three counts of crimes against humanity.
