Congo villagers gripped by LRA terror
Simon Rawles, The Guardian
(Produced by Christian Bennett)
Violent attacks and heightened fear of the Lord's Resistance Army have left people in the eastern provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo feeling isolated and vulnerable. The LRA is an anti-government guerrilla group formed in Uganda more than 20 years ago, and now active in DRC, as well as South Sudan and Central African Republic. Its leader, Joseph Kony, is one of the world's most wanted war criminals.
