Increased international attention has yet to produce signs of an end to one of the world's most brutal humanitarian crises, which has displaced 1.6 million people in northern Uganda. The rebellion by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), which kidnaps children, brutalises them, and sends them out to slaughter their friends and relatives, has been going on for 18 years. Some 28,000 children have been abducted, nearly half of them in the two years up to May 2004.
GENEVA, 6 July 2004 - Although the international community has begun to increase its attention to the brutal conflict ravaging northern Uganda, hundreds of people have been massacred and more than 200,000 fled their homes during the recent spate of attacks by the rebel Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), says a report published by the Norwegian Refugee Council's Global IDP Project today.
