Warlord Kony benefits from chaos in CAR

12 February 2014, 08:25

Kampala - A new report says the fugitive African warlord Joseph Kony may be getting a "lifeline" from chaos in Central African Republic, where sectarian violence has displaced nearly one million people.

The report released on Tuesday by groups that monitor the Lord's Resistance Army — Invisible Children and The Resolve —said rebel attacks increased in 2013 and rebels may be using looting raids in eastern Central African Republic to resupply commanders.

Kony, an infamous warlord who abducts children, is believed to be hiding in Central African Republic. The groups say instability is making it more difficult for African troops and US advisers to target rebels.

The Enough Project also said recently that violence in Central African Republic and South Sudan provides "a dream scenario for LRA rebels to hide and avoid capture".
