Kony screening provokes anger in Uganda

Ugandans, who suffered at hands of Lord's Resistance Army, react in anger at Kony video causing internet waves.



    Joseph Kony is a household name, thanks to a 30-minute YouTube video raising awareness about his brutal rebel group, the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA).

    Tens of millions have seen the video after US charity, Invisible Children, released the clip online last week.

    On Tuesday, a charity organisation showed the film to the people who suffered at the hands of the LRA - Ugandans in the north of the country.

    Al Jazeera's Malcolm Webb reports from the town of Lira after the screening.
