The foot soldiers searching the deep jungles on the hunt for African warlord Joseph Kony were convinced they had cornered his deputy as they exchanged gunfire with a band of Lord's Resistance Army rebels.
The hunt for the African warlord Joseph Kony is hopeless without more troops, an advocacy group said Friday, urging American forces to "play a more operational role" in the vast Central Africa jungle.
Ugandan officials are renewing a claim made with some frequency over the years: That rebel leader Joseph Kony and his Lord's Resistance Army are receiving backing from the government of Sudan.
If Joseph Kony lived in relative anonymity before this week, he's an Internet star now.

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni last month pledged to send as many as 20,000 troops to help rid Somalia of an al Qaeda-linked terrorist group and augment the 6,000 African peacekeepers already stationed there, if a richer nation would provide funding for logistics and equipment.
Uganda said Wednesday that it is ready to send 10,000 more troops to Somalia if the U.S. provides the funding, a move that would more than double the size of the African Union force in Mogadishu.
Dozens of rebels attacked a U.N. peacekeeping base under darkness in eastern Congo early Wednesday, killing three Indian soldiers and wounding seven other peacekeepers, an Indian army official said.
Military spokesman Col. Felix Kulayigye praised the U.S. for supplying helicopters and troops for helping to drive defections from the Lord's Resistance Army, but he asserted that "they need to invest more in technology."
"Kony has been denied the freedom to abduct at will," Col. Kulayigye said. "He can't increase his numbers."
