LRA Recruiting Child Soldiers, Says HRW

The Human Rights Watch (HRW) says a notorious Ugandan rebel group has abducted hundreds of villagers forced them to fight

The Human Rights Watch (HRW) says a notorious Ugandan rebel group has abducted hundreds of villagers in the Central African Republic (CAR) and the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and forced them to fight.

According to the HRW research, the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) has seized more than 697 adults and children over the last 18 months in CAR and the Bas Uele district of northern DRC.

Senior Africa researcher at HRW, Anneke van Woudenberg, argues that, "The LRA continues its horrific campaign to replenish its ranks by brutally tearing children from their villages and forcing them to fight.”
