UN to discuss report claiming Kony location

As new report claims to know whereabouts of rebel fugitive leader, Al Jazeera profiles Joseph Kony and his LRA group.

    The United Nations Security Council is set to discuss a report that could narrow the hunt for the fugitive rebel leader, Joseph Kony.

    The head of the Lord's Resistance Army is wanted for crimes against humanity, including rape and using child soldiers.

    An African Union task force with 5,000 soldiers and backed by US special forces and aircraft is currently searching a vast area of central Africa to track Kony down.

    Kony has led an elusive, ghostly existence in the dense jungles of the area for years and is often called Africa's most wanted man.
