Uganda: The Death Zone in the North


September 12, 2005

  The army has asked the Sudanese government for permission to pursue LRA fighters "deeper into Sudan." The army believes that several hold-out LRA leaders had moved to base camps "above the Red Line." The Red Line demarcates the zone inside Sudan where Ugandan units can patrol and conduct "hot pursuit" strikes. There was no comment from the Sudanese government but Sudan has continued to renew the agreement permitting Ugandan military operations south of the Red Line. The Red Line generally follows the Juba-Jabuleni-Tolit road.
