The government has designated "ceasefire zones" where LRA rebels can collect. This follows a November 14 declaration by the Ugandan government that it would begin a seven-day "suspension of military operations" as part of a pending peace deal. The "suspension of operations" began November 15 at 1800 hours and will run through November 23. On November 16 Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni declared that LRA rebels could move via "eight safe routes" (corridors) in northern Uganda to areas where the LRA rebels can assemble for further negotiations. Apparently the looming deal also includes a "collection area" in southern Sudan. This looks like a looming victory for the Ugandan government.
