Lord’s Resistance Army
The Lord’s Resistance Army or LRA is an extremist Christian group operating in north Uganda, South Sudan, the Central African Republic and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Its activities are not based on specific and consistent political agenda. Rather, it functions as a personality cult of its leader Joseph Kony. The International Criminal Court recently sentenced a child soldier turned LRA commander Dominic Ongwen to 25 years imprisonment for his involvement in war crimes and crimes against humanity.
