Uganda: May 31, 2005


  The Ugandan military now believes the LRA (Lord's Resistance Army) has 400 armed guerrillas-- down from 3,000 the end of 2004. The Ugandan military has destroyed the LRA's five biggest camps in Sudan, in operations that began in 2004. The Ugandan government also maintains that the LRA is no longer able to rely on abductions to increase its number of fighters. Although the new report didn't go into details, the political decision to give amnesty to some members of the LRA's senior leadership has also had an effect. Demobilized LRA guerrillas have been encouraging holdouts to also put down their arms.
