Uganda: February 5, 2004


About 300 to 350 LRA rebels gained access to the Abia refugee camp in Lira by pretending to be government soldiers and militias and killed over 50 internally displaced persons (IDPs, more commonly known as refugees) in a camp near the northern town of Lira on 5 February. A 12-man militia squad tried to repulse the rebels, but the attack only stopped when the army sent reinforcements in an armored personnel carrier. - Adam Geibel
