By 2005, the LRA ceased activity in Uganda. On August 26, 2006, the LRA and Ugandan government signed a cessation of hostilities agreement.  Simultaneously, the LRA’s foothold in southern Sudan was beginning to weaken. In 2005, the Sudanese government and the SPLA/M signed the Comprehensive Peace Agreement. This change, combined with the International Criminal Court’s (ICC) indictment of LRA commanders in 2005, caused Kony to relocate LRA bases to northeastern DRC, while LRA combatants continued to attack civilians in Western Equatoria State, southern Sudan.
