Updated Ugandan guerrilla leader Joseph Kony has forced more than 60,000 kidnapped children to kill for him. Nonprofit crusaders Invisible Children say they’ll stop him, but the group has its own problems.
At least 230 people were killed and 190 injured when an oil tanker truck flipped over and blew up in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The blast was reportedly sparked by a cigarette as local residents attempted to collect oil spilling from the wreck.
A recent upsurge in fighting between the Lord’s Resistance Army and soldiers of the Democratic Republic of the Congo has displaced 40,000 people, adding to the nearly half a million persons already uprooted by the conflict.
