By Emmy Allio KONY rebels, who attacked Kitgum district on Saturday, targeted and randomly killed 20 cows and drove away an unspecified number of livestock to Sudan as they retreated from UPDF and LDU gunfire. About 100-300 Kony rebels also killed a UPDF soldier and wounded three others, the Gulu-based 4th Division army public relations officer, Capt. Khelil Magara, said yesterday. Two of the rebels were killed, one was captured. The army said Joseph Kony, the leader of the terrorist Lord’s Resistance Army, was not among the attackers. The army said the LRA, who ended a two-year relative peace in the area, killed two civilians. The rebels fled, leaving behind two short machine-guns, two rocket-propelled gun shells and 24 rounds of 12.7mm ammunitions. “They are not in the country. They fled back to Sudan, leaving behind dead cows and human beings,” Magara said. The attack has re-awakened the suppressed fears in the population traumatised by over a decade of war. The Agoro market in Lamwo county in Kitgum district, renown for livestock auction, is now closed. Thousands of civilians in the north have been killed, maimed and abducted since the war began in 1986. Sudanese President Lt Gen Omar el-Bashir has promised action on Kony. Ends
