Ituri Massacres: Civilian Dead in the Hundreds

The coordinated campaign to bring down J. Kony and the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA) has yet to pay any measurable dividends and, worse, the LRA continues to run rampant through the region.

For all the blame that has fallen on NGO's that insist upon providing aid and relief to the LRA, when news like this comes in, it still terrible news. That is the Reuters version of the UN report from the region.

*This* cites the report on the incident from Caritas, a Christian NGO aid provider... which is probably having some awful second thoughts about things right now.

This matter was first examined here at CompHyp back on 20.Oct 2008 in The Weekly N&C, with a focus upon the roles of Christian Charity NGO's in perpetuating the problem.
