Second LRA Leader Killed Before Being Brought to Justice

Back in 2005, the International Criminal Court issued five arrest warrants against leaders of the Lord's Resistance Army, which is based in northern Uganda. None of these has been actually enforced, however. President Museveni of Uganda could never catch the rebel leaders, and it doesn't seem that the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, who is dependent upon Ugandan authorities to make arrests, hasn't faredany better.
Seeral months ago, one of the five indictees, Vincent Otti, was apparently murdered by the leader of the Lord's Resistance Army, Joseph Kony. Today we have reports that a second leader, Okot Odhiambo, against whom there is also an arrest warrant, has been executed by his boss.
