In war-torn northern Uganda, warrants for rebels seen as threat to peace

An unusual feeling washed over the hills of northern Uganda last month. It was hope. For the first time since the start of a terrifying insurgency 20 years ago, peace talks between rebels and the government were making progress. We have been suffering for so long. We need this, said a withered Anna Alwoch, 65, who watched the rebels of the Lords Resistance Army kill her husband in the first days of the war before shoving a gun in her chest and threatening to rape her. Instead they sliced off her upper lip. Now, however, the talks have broken down and hope has given way to anger not just at the cultlike LRA, architects of one of Africas gravest humanitarian crises, but also, and more surprisingly, at the International Criminal Court, based 4,000 miles away in the Netherlands.
