Uganda: May 8, 2003


Heres an update on reports of refugees fleeing the DRC and coming into Uganda. Its worse than the Ugandan government first thought. Uganda now estimates 60,000 DRC civilians have fled into Uganda from the, primarily, the Ituri region. Most of the refugees are Hema tribesmen. The Hema are the Lendus traditional enemy. Lendu militias are still attacking civilians around Bunia in the DRC.  A subsequent report said that there may be another surge of refugees heading for Uganda, following new fighting in the DRC on May 7.
