An unidentified LRA source issued a statement confirming that its negotiators had met "face to face" with Ugandan government representatives. The latest meeting took place in Gulu district. Ugandan sources report that LRA leader Joseph Kony is believed to be in north Uganda. Kony was hiding in south Sudan, but attacks on LRA base camps in Sudan forced him to move back into Uganda. The Ugandan media is rife with speculation of a lurking political deal that would bring Kony and his followers "out of the bush."
