The rebel group Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) continues the stage attacks against villagers in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where several people were killed and wounded recently.

The Ugandan leader of the group, Joseph Kony, is still at large and is believed to be hiding with his men in the jungle of the central African country.

The new attacks come as the US charity Invisible Children is expected to put out a follow-up of the Kony 2012 online video, implicating the rebel leader in the murder and kidnapping of children in neighbouring Uganda.

Invisible Children's first video went viral and raised awareness about Kony, who is wanted by the International Criminal Court for war crimes.
