Uganda: June 5, 2004


The army reports that the LRA lost nearly 400 men in May. These include those rebels killed (147), captured (18) or surrendered (215). Rebels killed nearly 200 civilians in the same month.  The army freed 270 civilians being held captive by the rebels. The violence also left 55 civilians and nine soldiers dead.  Constant pressure by the army and police in the last two years, and Sudanese cooperation in closing LRA camps across the border, has reduced LRA strength to less than a thousand armed men and teenagers.
