African Union says the rebel group led by one of the world’s most wanted fugitives could roar back to life if countries don’t “urgently” fill the void as the United States and Uganda give up the pursuit.
The statement was made on Friday by the AU continental body’s Peace and Security Council.
Joseph Kony was accused of killing thousands and kidnapping children to become soldiers and sex slaves in Central Africa.
The US military has said the rebel group’s active membership is now less than 100, and Uganda’s military has said the group has been neutralized. But Kony remains on the run.
