Central African Republic calls on US to help crush LRA

The Central African Republic has called on the United States for military support to help “neutralise” LRA rebels terrorising the country, state radio said Monday.

Rebels of the Lord’s Resistance Army “have been on Central African territory since February 2008 when they were chased out of Uganda, and have been committing violations of all kinds and sowing terror among the population,” it quoted Foreign Minister Antoine Gambi as saying.

In May, US President Barack Obama promulgated a law to develop a comprehensive strategy to protect civilians from LRA attacks in the four countries in which they have been active, Uganda, DR Congo, south Sudan and the CAR.
