US troops pull out of effort to find Kony
Culled from BBC World Service
American special forces withdrew from the Central African Republic where were helping an African Union-led force fight the notorious Ugandan rebel group, the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA).
LRA leader Joseph Kony is wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes and crimes against humanity and remains at large.
The US military said the five-year operation against the LRA had rendered the group irrelevant and its leader ineffective.
Uganda, which provided the vast majority of troops, also withdrew. It said the LRA had only 100 men left.
It is likely that nobody really knows how many fighters remain or exactly what they do.
Although significantly diminished, they remain active across the region….
LRA leader Jospeh Kony is still at large despite the troop pull out
