Children Under Fire in Ugandan Conflict

In the small African country of Uganda it has been estimated that over 25,000 children have been abducted by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), a group of militants that has plagued the Acholi region of Northern Uganda for over twenty years. The children that have been abducted are often forced to participate in the torturing and killing of fellow child captives and members of their own family.
