In a statement Wednesday, the U.S. Embassy in Zimbabwe criticized the selective targeting of media figures.

U.S. troops deploy in LRA rebel hunt
ENTEBBE | U.S. troops have begun a regionwide hunt for fighters from the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), a Ugandan-born group that has been killing, raping and looting for years, the Ugandan army said Tuesday.
President Obama in October sent 100 special forces soldiers to help Uganda track down LRA chief and international fugitive Joseph Kony, who has wreaked havoc over four nations for more than two decades.
“[U.S. troops] are there, and they are setting up their bases,” said Ugandan army spokesman Felix Kulayigye.
U.S. troops had deployed to Obo in the Central African Republic and Nzara in South Sudan, where Uganda’s army has forward bases to battle the rebel group, Mr. Kulayigye said, but gave no details of the numbers of troops sent.
