Obama Issues $5 Million Reward For Joseph Kony's Capture

The Obama administration has announced this week that they will offer a $5 million reward to any information directly leading to the capture of Central African Republic warlord Joseph Kony.

The president's announcement comes on the heels of news from soldiers in that country that they have suspended the search for the wanted war criminal, reports news.co.au. President Obama has also issued rewards for information leading to the capture of Kony's two lieutenants, Okot Odhiambo and Dominic Ongwen, the site adds.

Ugandan army chief General Aronda Nyakairima announced plans to suspend actions against Kony while he and other leaders confirm with the African Union:

"We put a halt to operations until we consult," General Nyakairima said in an official statement. "We're still there and we are going nowhere until we have consulted. We're officially there under the African Union."

Obama has also issued a reward for Sylvestre Mudacumura , leader of the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda.
