Uganda: July 29, 2004


The Ugandan army moved 200 kilometers into Sudan to make a surprise attack on the main camp of LRA leader Joseph Kony. While the troops killed 120 rebels, captured 28 (including four of Kony's 30 wives), Kony and over a hundred followers were able to flee. While the Ugandan army is allowed to operate against the LRA in southern Sudan, it had to get special permission to move that deep into the country. This permission was secretly granted, and the Ugandan troops attacked the LRA camp from several directions.
