Uganda: February 19, 2004


During a battle raging into the evening, the LRA lost 25 fighters at Okee Bridge on the Pader-Lira border (supposedly from a group of about 100). Reports from Kitgum say LRA leader Joseph Kony has instructed his soldiers to seal off most of the access routes to the district.

The Ugandan army said that 37 rebels died in fighting the day before when government soldiers backed by helicopter gunships attacking an LRA unit, rescuing civilian captives and recovering ammunition. - Adam Geibel
