One day after Uganda suspended its hunt for Lord's Resistance Army leader Joseph Kony, hampering the search for the notoriously brutal warlord, the U.S. on Wednesday offered up to $5 million for information leading to his arrest or conviction.

The State Department said it would also pay for similar help in catching two of Kony's senior lieutenants as well as a Rwandan rebel leader. The money is available under the War Crimes Rewards Program.
