Searching for Joseph Kony and Lords Resistance Army

Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony is one of the world's most wanted men, held responsible for atrocities committed by his Lords Resistance Army (LRA).

He has been evading capture for seven years, since a warrant for his arrest was issued by the International Criminal Court.

Recently his name has been in the news after a documentary about him and the LRA was watched by 100 million people on the internet. And for the last four months US special forces have been on his trail, working with local troops to try to track him down.

The BBC's Dan Damon has been travelling with them for the past few days, and told Today presenter John Humphrys about the search and the extreme terror Joseph Kony still instils for many people in northern Uganda, who believe he has magical powers.
