Uganda: June 16, 2003


President Museveni accused Sudan of secretly arming Joseph Kony's Lord's Resistance Army. Predictably, the Sudanese government denied these charges and pointed out that the LRA also attack Sudanese villages. Under the "Operation Iron Fist" agreements, the Ugandan army has three more months to operate in southern Sudan. The protocol signed on June 11 allows them to stay until August 31. Meanwhile, the LRA killed 18 people during a raids in the northern district of Apac. - Adam Geibel
