Uganda may pull troops out of Somalia

After the U.N. made allegations against Uganda's soldiers in the former Zaire and Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda has vowed to pull out the 4500 soldiers currently working in a peacekeeping facility in Somalia. The allegations included accounts of torture and even massacre and the U.N. urged the necessity to prosecute those responsible. Other than Uganda, only Burundi has offered troops to the African Union to help the war-torn Somalia, so such a pull out may be harmful to the peacekeeping process.
