Uganda: January 1, 2000


The Lord's Resistance army (LRA) launched another attack near the northern Ugandan town of Gulu. At least 10 people were killed. The Ugandan Army now says as many as 500 LRA rebels entered Uganda in mid-December. The LRA is supported by Sudan's Khartoum government. Recall the FYEO report that Uganda and Sudan signed an agreement December 8. The agreement said that Sudan would stop supporting anti-Ugandan rebels and Uganda would stop supporting anti-Sudanese rebels. It is still possible that the LRA moved out of Sudan because the Sudanese told the LRA they would no longer support them. However, the operations in Uganda appear to be aimed at causing havoc rather than establishing new base camps -- in other words, a repetition of past LRA action in Uganda.
