KAMPALA, Uganda --
Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni says that U.S. military "personnel" being sent to Uganda to help fight the rebel group the Lord's Resistance Army will not participate in actual fighting.
Museveni told a news conference Sunday it was wrong to say the
U.S. was sending troops to fight the LRA. Museveni said it was better to call them personnel, and not troops. The 25-year leader said his country will never accept foreign troops to do Uganda's fighting.
President Barack Obama announced Friday he is dispatching about
100 U.S. troops -- mostly special operations forces -- to central
Africa to advise in the fight against the LRA -- a guerrilla group
accused of widespread atrocities across several countries.
