Uganda peacekeeping troop removal threat

3 November 2012 Last updated at 03:31 GMT

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.
