Uganda: April 6, 2003


Army troops have killed at least 30 rebels in northern Uganda, only days after a three-week cease-fire expired. On the 5th, helicopter gunships attacked LRA camps in Pader and Gulu districts. The highest estimates were that 60 rebels were killed, but troops are still in the area searching.

Meanwhile, about 68,000 civilians have been forced to displace to government "protected camps," which are actually left fairly unprotected. One small sign of hope was the return over 50 ex-LRA rebels, who have been hiding in Kenya since 1987 returned home and entered rehabilitation courses that same day. - Adam Geibel
