Uganda Rebels Ambush Convoy

The Ugandan Lord’s Resistance Army rebels have ambushed a convoy of vehicles on a “safe” road, leaving nine people dead and scores injured. The attack occurred between 4.30pm and 5.00pm local time at Moroli, about 50 miles west of the northern regional town of Gulu. The rebels also burnt a vehicle belonging to Uganda’s leading pro-government daily newspaper, the New Vision and showered others with bullets. The paper’s regional marketing officer, Jonathan Kibale whose vehicle was leading the convoy was shot dead and his body burnt by the rebels. A commanding officer of the Ugandan army, the Ugandan Peoples Defence Front, UPDF, Colonel Andrew Guti and a district commissioner said that the ambush was a big surprise since the road had been safe for the last nine months. He said that his office had by Wednesday morning not received the details of the ambush from the field commanders and the UPDF soldiers who were escorting the convoy. Full Story
