Uganda: December 12, 2004


Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) killed seven Sudanese civilians. On December 10 the LRA thugs attacked the village of Rajaf in Sudan's Bahr el-Jebel State. Eight people were wounded in the attack. The LRA thugs stole food as well as livestock. The report stated that one source of the information was the regional hospital in Juba, Sudan, where the wounded were taken and treated. This is another indication of Uganda's military success against the LRA and increasing political success. A number of LRA members have turned themselves in to the Ugandan government. LRA leader Joseph Kony reportedly ordered his fighters to pull back into Sudan. The problem is, the Ugandan military has destroyed most of the LRA's base structure in south Sudan. Now the LRA thugs are once again pillaging Sudanese villages.
