Banditry is rife across northern Uganda, scarred by two decades of insurgency by the LRA and widespread cattle rustling by AK-47-toting Karamojong warriors. Both have a habit of ambushing then looting civilian vehicles."We suspect these were just armed thugs who targeted the cash," an army spokesman for northern Uganda, told Reuters. "It doesn't look like an LRA attack and there are no Karamojong warriors in Amuru."The LRA normally burn vehicles after attacks, but Magezi said the attackers merely robbed cash and escaped.
