: Frustrated with the LRA, the secretary general of Uganda's national council for traditional healers and herbalists association (Nacotha) to use killer bees and diseases such as smallpox to help beat the rebels. They also offered to equip the Ugandan Army with magic charms, making the individual soldiers invincible. Their offer was a direct response to a junior Defense Minister's appeal for the nation's spiritual support in the fight against the LRA rebels. 

The army battled the LRA near Apala (20 kms north of Lira) for several hours in the late afternoon, supposedly losing 30 soldiers to an unknown number of rebels. - Adam Geibel
