PAICHO, UGANDA AUGUST 3: Akumu Nighty (c), age 20, and Onkom Geoffrey, age 25, are victims of the civil war on August 3, 2005 in Paicho, a camp for displaced people in Northern Uganda. They were injured by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) and were later taken to hospitals in Gulu, the provincial capital. The rebel group has brought terror to Northern Uganda for almost twenty years, fighting the Ugandan government. The victims are usually children, which are abducted and used as child soldiers and sex slaves. Many of the abducted children are forced to perform gruesome acts and are usually brainwashed when initiated in the LRA. About 60.000 people live in the camp in bad conditions.
