Ugandan forces captured a senior commander of Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army after a brief fight with rebels near the Congo-Central African Republic border, an army official said Sunday, in what an analyst said was an "intelligence coup" for forces hunting for Kony.
Angelo Izama, an analyst who runs a Kampala-based security think tank called Fanaka Kwawote, said the Lord's Resistance Army would be even weaker today if countries like Congo and the Central African Republic became as committed as the Ugandans are to fighting the rebels.
"The Americans could open a new front with the Central African Republic authorities and pursue Kony with more flexibility from that side," Mr. Izama said.
