The hunt to 'stop Kony' continues

Some recent reports and research has found that Joseph Kony’s Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), an African Christian militant group, has been reduced to just a little over 100 men. But a new report by the human rights NGO, the Enough Project, says that despite small numbers, the LRA still wreaks disproportional havoc by conducting increased abductions, forced recruiting of child soldiers and illegal ivory trading. We’ll talk about the report, Tusk Wars: New information on the blood ivory trade of Kony's Lord's Resistance Army, with Sasha Lezhnev, the Enough Project’s team leader of the D.R. Congo, Great Lakes Region and LRA team. He focuses on peace process and conflict minerals issues. (Photo: Flickr/Thierry Ehrmann)
