Uganda has sent a delegation to Bunia township in eastern Congo to receive bodies of the four marine police officers who were killed on Lake Albert.
The bodies, which were handed over to the delegation yesterday, will be transported through Vurra border crossing in West Nile to Kampala.
The bodies are for; Sgt Faruk Waiswa, Cpl Biral Obara, Constable Moses Ochen and Constable Bernard Isingoma, who were killed while responding to illegal fishing by Congolese.
Uganda has threatened to use military force against DR Congo if attacks on its citizens ever re-occur on Ugandan soil.
Meanwhile, the Uganda-DR Congo border post at Mpondwe in Kasese District has been reopened for trade.
It had been closed for three days after misunderstandings between the Uganda traders and Societe Civile, an association of local traders in DR Congo, on handling of bodies of Ugandans who die from across the border.
Ugandan traders demonstrated attracting police intervention.
A similar strike occurred in December 2010 after a Ugandan trader died in Congo.
