UGANDA-SUDAN: LRA kills over 100 villagers in southern Sudan


KAMPALA, 8 Jul 2004 (IRIN) - More than 100 people were recently killed in southern Sudan by Ugandan rebels belonging to the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) in raids on villages around the towns of Torit and Juba, a relief worker in the area said.

"I have been in southern Sudan, and the reports we got indicate that the LRA attacked people in the villages and in the fields. They [the LRA] killed many of them," the relief worker told IRIN. Saying the dead numbered more than 100, he added: "The villages are situated between Torit and Juba, [and] are remote and inaccessible, because some are either in areas controlled by the SPLM/A [Sudan People's Liberation Movement/Army] or the government forces."
