Uganda: July 13, 2001


The Ugandan Army reported that on July 12 it re-deployed units in the northeatern corner of the DRC to help stop a province-wide witch hunt. Western sources now report that around 800 people have died in the witch hunt, most of them hacked to death or lynched. Reports of witch hunts and witch trials near the DRC city of Aru began appearing in late June. The Ugandan military now confirms that the witch hunts and killings have become wide-spread. A subsequent report said 70 people had been arrested for participating in witch killings.
