Uganda: March 9, 2000


The Lords' Resistance army is active again in northern Uganda. On March 7 LRA guerrillas killed 12 people and wounded another three dozen. The biggest attack was on a refugee camp in Kitgum district. (One western press source called the camp "Padibe camp.") A Ugandan government spokesman said around 30,000 people were in or near the camp. On March 4 a Ugandan government spokesman said the LRA kidnapped two priests from the Catholic mission at Opit.
