Senior commander from the LRA taken into custody by US forces in the CAR.
Uganda’s military has confirmed that a senior commander in the rebel Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) movement has been taken into custody by US forces.
The army spokesman told the BBC that soldiers had visited Dominic Ongwen, who surrendered in the Central African Republic, to formally identify him.
The International Criminal Court (ICC) wants to put Mr Ongwen on trial for war crimes and crimes against humanity.
But the Ugandan government has said it would prefer to try him at home.
Government spokesman Ofwono Opondo says Mr Ongwen should be in Uganda by the end of the week, when he would be charged.
Then, in March last year, the US announced it was sending military aircraft and more special forces to help track down the LRA leadership.
