Uganda: January 18, 2004


Uganda's Defense minister claims that LRA rebel leader Joseph Kony is desperately looking for other contacts to supply him with arms, after Sudan dumped him. The Sudanese Government had promised to punish its soldiers who were having unsanctioned deals with Kony - who is currently suspected to be holed up in Himatong mountains in southern Sudan. Since the beginning of this campaign, the army has killed 928 LRA rebels (among them many LRA officers), captured 791 rebels and rescued 7,299 captives, while 88 soldiers died in the combat, 141 were injured and four went missing.- Adam Geibel
