Uganda: January 20, 2000


Ugandan military sources said that the Ugandan Army had blunted the LRA's latest attempt to cross the border from Sudan. A spokesman said the Ugandan Army thwarted an infiltration attempt conducted by approximately 250 LRA guerrillas in the northern Kitgum district. The spokesman also said Ugandan intelligence believed the 250 guerrillas had retreated to a camp inside Sudan, near the town of Jubelein(60 kilometers south of Juba, in southern Sudan.) As reported last month in FYEO, 200 to 300 LRA guerrillas infiltrated Uganda in early December. They have been operating in the Kitgum and Gulu districts.
