Ugandan Troops Capture Top Commander in Kony’s Army

One of the top three commanders of the Joseph Kony–led Lord’s Resistance Army, Caesar Achellam, was captured by the Ugandan Army in the jungles of the Central African Republic after a firefight with the U.S.-backed Ugandan troops on Saturday, according to a military official. Achellam was a major general in the rebel ranks of the brutal LRA. “Achellam is alive, and we are expecting him at Entebbe airport today,” a spokesman for Uganda’s army said. Aided by 100 U.S. military advisers, the army continues to hunt for Kony himself. The United Nations recently said that Kony’s capture was imminent.
