Actual news stories about Joseph Kony and the Lord’s Resistance Army

Amid all the Tweets, media peeps and bleeped comments surrounding the release of the Stop Kony video this week, there are also some actual news stories you might have missed:

AllAfrica UN maintains efforts against Lord’s Resistance Army

Sydney Morning Herald Last gasp: Kony’s cult strikes again

Christian Science Monitor After long silence, LRA rebels attack and US-led forces track

The gist here is that Joseph Kony’s LRA militia, though now relatively small and actually in DR Congo (not Uganda), is still conducting raids and terrorizing people. The LRA attacks took place in February, before the video campaign was launched by the group Invisible Children.
