US To Send Troops to Uganda

The United States will send 100 troops to Africa to help the Ugandan government fight the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), a militant group that has waged a war against Uganda for more than 20 years. The LRA, led by Joseph Kony, is accused of committing mass atrocities against civilians and using child soldiers in battle.  According to the letter that President Obama sent to Congress, the troops will advise the Ugandan Army and will not engage in combat unless they are attacked.
