I killed so many I lost count, says boy, 11

Excerpt from UK Telegraph report by David Blair in Gulu 3/8/2005:
During 19 years of war, the LRA has abducted 20,000 children, enslaving and indoctrinating them for use as soldiers and sexual playthings. More than 10,000 have been taken in the past three years alone. Uniquely in the annals of guerrilla war, Kony's army consists almost entirely of abducted children and, within and without his forces, he brutalises and murders as many as possible.His war has no coherent demands. The LRA is a fanatical cult rather than a political movement.
Note, the US recognises the LRA as a terrorist organisation.
