'Off the 99' podcast: 'Kony 2012'

The viral video "Kony 2012," making the rounds on YouTube and Facebook this month, has generated calls for attention to Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army, a Ugandan guerrilla group accused of ordering the abduction of children to become sex slaves and soldiers. In October 2005, Sun-Star photographer Bea Ahbeck photographed some of the rehabilitation centers in Uganda where child soldiers, many sustaining severe wounds, and others displaced by war, sought safe haven.
