Uganda: October 20, 2003


Helicopter gunships were deployed against LRA rebels who attacked a village in Soroti, torched 14 huts and killed three people. The army thinks these rebels are under LRA commander Charles Tabuley and not a new group operating in the area.

The Government also approved the creation of 10 more Internal Displaced Person's (IDP) camps in Kitgum district. Kitgum had seven camps while Gulu had 33 and Pader 12. More camps have since sprung up following the insurgency in Teso. By July 2003, there were over one million people in the camps in north and northeastern Uganda. - Adam Geibel
