The State Department confirmed Tuesday that U.S. forces in the Central African Republic had taken a man claiming to be a senior member of the Lord's Resistance Army into custody.
According to State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki, authorities were working to confirm the identity of the man claiming to be Dominic Ongwen, a senior LRA commander who was wanted by Interpol before ultimately turning himself in. (Video via U.S. Department of State)
