Uganda: June 27, 2003


And another rough week passes in northern Uganda. On June 24 LRA thugs abducted approximately 100 schoolchildren near the town of Soroti. The LRA also attacked Soroti. On June 25 and 26, Ugandan Army troops freed several dozen of the abducted children. On June 27 the Ugandan Army caught up with the LRA gang. Twelve LRA rebels were killed in two firefights and four captured. In the firefight near Abarilera (Katakwi district) ten LRA thugs died. Two were killed in a firefight in the village of Acowa. The LRA increased activity suggests that the LRA is being resupplied. Whos responsible? The Ugandan government says its Sudan.
