Uganda: October 31, 2003


Uganda asked the UN to be on the lookout for camps and supply lines of the rebel Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), the National Army for the Liberation of Uganda (NALU) and the Peoples' Redemption Army (PRA). This followed the confirmation by the Congo's minister for regional cooperation on October 23, of the presence of Ugandan rebel training camps in the northeastern North Kivu Province (between Beni and Kasindi). 

Ugandan troops had clashed with rebels across northeastern Uganda over the previous three days, killing 33 of them in three separate battles. On the 29th, the European Union's representative in Uganda said that he doubted that Uganda's 17-year civil war with rebels in north would be ended by military muscle. - Adam Geibel
