Uganda: January 22, 2005


The Ugandan government reported that the army killed 20 LRA rebels in a battle on January 17, near the Sudanese border. Troops encountered 30 LRA fighters, killing 20 LRA and capturing three. Another four LRA rebels later surrendered and that one of those who surrendered was identified as an LRA intelligence officer. The army also hit another LRA unit on January 19 and  eight rebels were killed in the fight. The Ugandan military is believed to be conducting operations against the LRA in south Sudan. The Ugandan military said in early January that it believes the LRA is using the ceasefire to reorganize. The army operations may be part of a "hammer and anvil" strategy, to push holdout LRA units into Ugandan blocking positions or ambushes in Sudan--which would utterly frustrate "reorganization." Despite the military operations, the Ugandan government says it still supports the ceasefire and peace process.
