Rebels Abduct Trainee Priests

Ugandan rebels have abducted trainee priests in an ongoing bid to overthrow the government and rule the country according to the Bible’s Ten Commandments. Forty-four Roman Catholic trainees aged between 12 and 18 are still missing. They were part of a group of about 60 people abducted by the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) on Sunday. An eight-year-old boy was killed during the midnight attack on St Mary’s Seminary in Gulu, 400km north of the capital Kampala. The LRA, led by a shadowy religous leader called Kony, who claims to be a spirit medium with supernatural powers, was formed 16 years ago. Kony’s political ideology is vague but is based on a religious cult that believes bullets fired by Ugandan soldiers are harmless as long as cult members sprinkle themselves with water blessed by Kony himself. St Mary’s rector, Monsignor Matthew Odong, confirmed that 44 students were still missing after the attack. Full Story
