Former LRA Commander Ongwen Handed over to UPDF
A senior militia commander wanted for war crimes has been handed over to Ugandan troops in the Central African Republic (CAR), the US says.
Dominic Ongwen, considered by some to be a deputy to Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) chief Joseph Kony, was taken into US custody last week.
Rebels in the CAR said he was captured but US officials say he defected.
Uganda has said he will face trial at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague.
The LRA has abducted thousands of children for fighting and sex slavery.
Both Ongwen and Joseph Kony are wanted by the ICC for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
