REBELS KILL 60 IN UGANDA, VICTIMS MADE TO EAT CORPSE
By Paul Busharizi

Kampala (Uganda), April 29
Rebels fleeing the Ugandan Army in southern Sudan forced 60 mourners in a funeral procession to eat the corpse they were carrying before gunning them down, an Army spokesman said on Monday.
The Army has been chasing Ugandan rebels of the Lord’s Resistance Army from their bases over the border in Sudan in the past month to try and stamp out a 15-year insurgency led by self-proclaimed prophet Joseph Kony.

“Kony attacked a funeral procession of about 60 people, forced them to cook the corpse in sorghum and eat it,” Army spokesman Maj. Shaban Bantariza told Reuters. “They thought that they would survive if they obeyed but the rebels shot and killed all of them after they had eaten the corpse.”

The attack happened on Friday at the Agoro hills near the Sudanese border with Uganda where the rebels have taken refuge from the Army’s operation “Iron Fist.” Maj. Bantariza said Kony — who wants to found a state based on the Biblical Ten Commandments — believes the people of the area are helping the Ugandan Army in their offensive, which is being conducted with the permission of the Sudanese government.
