Rebels attack police station in Mt. Elgon area


Last night at 02:30, an heavily armed group of men attacked the police station in Bukwo which is located in the Mt. Elgon area in Eastern Uganda.

The group is yet to identify itself and claim responsibility.

Being heavily armed, the police officers on duty ran for their lives.

The police officers called UPDF for reinforcements and the attackers took off (all 6 of them) without being harmed.  The good news is none of the police officers were harmed.

Some ammunition was taken though.

This attack comes on the heels of Bundibugyo, Kasese and Kapchorwa where rebels seem determined to get guns and bullets.
