Uganda: May 8, 2004


Sudanese and Ugandan troops are continuing to cooperate in hunting down groups of LRA fighters, who are apparently heading north to a former camp in southern Sudan. Captured LRA members indicate that there are weapons buried around the old camps, and the rebels want to retrieve them to arm more men and boys. The LRA is hard to find, as they usually travel in groups of  a few hundred people, with half or more of those being kidnapped civilians forced to act as porters (carrying food). For the last three months, the Ugandan army has been aggressively going after several remaining LRA units.
