Not Good With Women

It's usually not a good sign when you need to pay for sex, but it's really bad when even prostitutes turn you down.
That's apparently what happened in Uganda today when a dejected rejected Ugandan Camp Guard opened fire and killed at least 10 civilians and injured another 13.

A refugee camp guard in northern Uganda has shot dead at least 10 displaced people with 13 others in hospital, some with their legs shattered.

An army spokesman said the attack at Ogwete in Lira district, was carried out by a local defence militiaman. He is reported to be on the run.

The man apparently shot his victims after an argument over a woman.

The area houses around 1.5m people who have fled attacks by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) rebels.

Army spokesman in Lieutenant Deo Akiki said people who knew the militiaman had no idea of the potential danger he posed.

He will face a court martial and a possible death sentence if apprehended.

Militias

The gunman is reported to be a member of the Amuka militia, one of several groups set up by the Ugandan army to protect villages against LRA attacks.

Whilst the militias have helped improve security, there have also been incidents of indiscipline with this latest being the worst, reports the BBC's Will Ross in Kampala. Earlier this month in another camp a civilian was shot and injured.

Lira District was hit badly by the LRA insurgency, with the worst incident being the massacre of more than 200 civilians at Barlonyo two years ago.

Frequent attacks forced thousands to flee to Lira town.

In recent months with security improved, people have been leaving Lira's camps - some heading back to their homes whilst others staying in the trading centres near their homes still preferring safety in numbers.
