Uganda: September 2, 2003


Looks like the brief respite in northern Uganda is over. The Ugandan government reported that LRA thugs killed at least 39 civilians in various incidents in northern Uganda, running from August 29 to September 1. The biggest assault took place on September 1 when the LRA attacked a bus in Soroti district (northeastern area). 25 civilians died in the attack. Another report said the LRA attacked a village in Soroti district August 30 and "hacked to death" (with machetes or other long knives) eight people. In that incident a nearby Ugandan Army unit chased the LRA group and freed two civilians the LRA had abducted from a school. (Austin Bay)
