CBC News Uganda's Haunted Children

It’s been called the Pearl of Africa. But more recently Uganda’s been known as the worst country in the world to be a child, where an entire generation has been caught up in a bloody civil war. Fighting the government for 20 years, the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) is known for its unspeakable brutality and has built its ranks by abducting children. Tens of thousands have lost their childhood. But thanks to a government amnesty program to coax rebels out of the bush, twenty thousand children have escaped and returned home.
