Uganda: October 14, 2003


The Ugandan government claimed LRA thugs killed 22 civilians when the LRA attacked a market place in Alanyi (a village in Lira district). Some 17 people were reportedly wounded. The government said the LRA group walked into the village and opened fire on the crowd. The Ugandan government also said the LRA had released 404 abducted civilians in north Ugandas Pader district. The government press statement said the captives were freed because a Ugandan battalion was chasing the LRA group that was holding the civilians.
