UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. special representative for Central Africa says African troops searching for Lord's Resistance Army leader Joseph Kony are concentrating on the Central African Republic although the accused war criminal keeps moving in and out of Sudan, South Sudan and Congo as well because he knows he's being tracked.
Abou Moussa told reporters after briefing the U.N. Security Council Monday that he thinks the capture of Kony is "coming pretty soon the way we are going."
Last month, African troops captured an LRA lieutenant and rescued about 10 civilians. In February, Uganda's military said the LRA's No.2 commander likely died after an attack late last year.
The Security Council welcomed recent stepped-up operations against the LRA. Kony, indicted on charges of crimes against humanity, has evaded capture for decades.
