Top Joseph Kony commander captured
Kampala: A Ugandan Army official says Ugandan forces have captured a senior commander of Joseph Kony`s Lord`s Resistance Army after a brief fight with rebels near the Congo-Central African Republic border.
Lt Colonel Abdul Rugumayo said today that Caesar Acellam was captured on Saturday with two other rebel fighters.
Rugumayo said they were in a group of about 30 LRA rebels. The others escaped.
Although Acellam is not one of the LRA commanders indicted along with Kony in 2005 by the International Criminal Court, Ugandan officials say he was Kony`s top military strategist.
Kony recently became the focus of international attention after the US advocacy group Invisible Children made an online video seeking to make him famous.
US forces are helping Ugandan troops find Kony and his top lieutenants.
