Uganda’s rebel Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) has said its fighters will remain in hiding even if a peace deal with the government is reached, unless indictments against several of its leaders are lifted.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) has indicted five LRA commanders, including the group’s leader, Joseph Kony, and his deputy, Vincent Otti, on charges of war crimes.
