New report says that warlord Joseph Kony, gave the order to butcher elephants for their ivory as far back as 2010.

The U.S.-based watchdog group Resolve said in a report in April that Kony recently directed killings from an enclave protected by the Sudanese military.

Former senior fighters who defected from the group report that the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) militia trades ivory for arms, ammunition, and food.
Former captives explained how LRA groups in Central African Republic and Congo trade ivory with unidentified people who arrive in helicopters.
