Tribunal to Probe Child Exploitation in Uganda

From Times Wire Reports

Ugandan rebel leaders who have exploited thousands of kidnapped children as soldiers or sex slaves will be the target of the first investigation by the International Criminal Court in The Hague, the chief prosecutor said.

The world’s only permanent war crimes tribunal won jurisdiction for its first case when Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni asked it to investigate possible crimes against humanity by the Lord’s Resistance Army.
