Uganda: June 4, 2004


About a hundred LRA men attacked a refugee center in the north, killing 23 civilians. Two rebels were killed by soldiers, and two soldiers were wounded. The refugee camps are sprawling affairs, and rebels will attack the portion of it farthest from where the soldiers camp is. The LRA men kill and terrorize the refugees, grab food and other useful goods, and take some of the refugees to carry the loot. They try and get away before the soldiers show up, but don't always succeed.

The army has a problem with the refugee camps, because sometimes rebels live in the camps (with members of their own tribe). The rebels do this because little food is being grown the north because of rebel activity. Relief agencies supply food for the refugee camps.
