Uganda peacekeeping troop removal threat

The Ugandan government has threatened to pull its troops out of all regional peacekeeping efforts, including in Somalia and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

The announcement came after a UN report, leaked last month, accused Uganda and Rwanda of supporting rebels in Eastern Congo.

Ugandan troops have been key to UN and African Union missions in the area.
