Uganda's army confirmed on Wednesday that a man who surrendered to US-African forces in the Central African Republic was Dominic Ongwen, a senior commander of the Lord's Resistance Army, a guerrilla group known for extreme violence.

"We can now confirm he's the one and we can also confirm he's in our custody at our base in Obo," Paddy Ankunda, Uganda's military spokesman, said. "We think he was just tired of bush life and simply turned himself in."
