WASHINGTON — US special forces will be deployed with front-line units as advisors to central African militaries hunting down the leaders of Uganda's Lord's Resistance Army, a senior US official said Tuesday.

Alexander Vershbow, a top Pentagon official, assured lawmakers that the deployment would likely last no more than "months" and was limited to aiding regional militaries to gather and use intelligence more effectively to target the elusive rebel force.
