Kony holed up on Sudan border - paper

LRA leader Joseph Kony is holed up on the Sudan border after losing two of his top commanders in recent clashes with the Ugandan army, the ‘New Vision’, quoting a captured rebel, reported today (Tuesday). According to the semi-official daily, Kony is in the Lamwaka Hills but has been blocked from reaching his objective, his shrine at Awere Hills near Gulu. The ‘New Vision’ said that new rebel bands entered Uganda last week and broke into smaller groups to intimidate local communities in Agago and Aru counties.
