Interviews with Kony's child soldiers

In 1998, Christiane Amanpour talked with scarred, shell-shocked children who were abducted by Joseph Kony and forced to fight in a bizarre guerrilla war

This week's 60 Minutes story about the hunt for Joseph Kony is not the first time this broadcast has traveled to Africa to learn about the twisted leader of the Lord's Resistance Army.

On assignment for 60 Minutes in 1998, Christiane Amanpour talked with scarred, shell-shocked children who were abducted by Joseph Kony and forced to fight in the world's most bizarre guerrilla war. Perhaps the most damning evidence of Kony's disturbed acts were in the savage drawings made by children who were brainwashed into becoming vicious killers.
