Editor's Choice - Pictures of the Day - May 13, 2012

Sundays are often slow news days, but today yielded a wealth of great photographs. No discernible theme to today's five pictures of the day, other than that they are all fantastic:

Ugandan army spokesman Felix Kulayigye (L) smiles next to Ceasar Acellam, a senior member of the Lord's Resistance Army (R) at the Ugandan army base in Djema on May 13, 2012. Ugandan troops have captured Acellam, the fourth-highest ranking member of the Lord's Resistance Army in a milestone arrest that could signal they are closing in on notorious rebel leader Joseph Kony. Acellam was arrested by Ugandan forces in Central African Republic, and was flown to the South Sudanese headquarters of the regional armies hunting the LRA. He was captured along with a Ugandan woman, a Central African teenager and a baby. (AFP/Getty Images/Michele Sibiloni)
