South Sudanese join hunt for LRA leader

Group calling itself Arrow Boys takes up arms to fight Joseph Kony, wanted by ICC for war crimes.

    Efforts to track down Joseph Kony and his Lords Resistance Army are intensifying.

    The African Union is sending 5,000 troops to hunt down the man wanted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court.

    Kony is believed to be operating in either the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of the Congo or South Sudan.

    But as Nazanine Moshiri reports from Yambio in South Sudan, people there are also taking matters into their own hands.
