report Marek Enterprise

Machete-wielding Rwandan rebels attacked a resettlement camp in northwestern Rwanda, hacking to death at least 30 people and injuring scores of others. AP reported that the attack occurred in Tamera, a village 50 miles northwest of Kigali, on the DR Congo border. Most of the victims were civilians. The rebels allegedly crossed over from Congo on December 23 and attacked during the evening hours. An army patrol arrived too late to do any good. It was the first such attack inside the country since Rwandan troops crossed into Congo in August 1998.

report World Vision

The insurgency in Northern Uganda may finally come to an end. Joseph Kony's thirteen-year-old Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) rebel group may finally put guns down to use their energies and wisdom for developmental activities other than burning it in devastating wars. Oh, what a good thing for the thousands of children in the war zone to hear. And what a relief to all the innocent people who have for over a decade lost hope for a peaceful living: without the sight of guns, of no hunger, no abduction, no rape, and no land mines.

HIGHLIGHTS
Angola. Government offensives in the Central Highlands have resulted in new displacement and subsequent humanitarian needs. Very high prevalences of malnutrition have once more been re-ported in Malange among children and also adults, and thus the situation has not improved since the last survey in June and affects both IDPs and the resident population.
