On Oct. 9, 1996, a boarding school run by Italian nuns in rural Uganda was awakened by shattering glass. Rebels from Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army broke in and abducted 139 girls, some as young as 8 years old. A nun from the school negotiated the release of all but 30 girls, who were then brutalized, ordered to kill and forced to be "wives" to rebel leaders.
