The LRA Crisis Tracker is a real-time mapping platform and data collection system created to bring an unprecedented level of transparency to the atrocities of the Lord’s Resistance Army. Using information sourced from Invisible Children’s Early Warning Radio Network, UN agencies, and local NGOs, this tool allows for better response from governments, policy-makers, and humanitarian organizations. For real-time updates on LRA attacks, check out LRA Crisis Tracker online, or follow them on Twitter @CrisisTracker.
During the week of June 18th to June 24th, the LRA Crisis Tracker reported only one suspected LRA incident. It should be noted, however, that the HF Radio Network reported several other attacks this week that are currently undergoing assessment of whether they can be attributed to LRA forces.
On June 22nd, near Ngilima, DRC, 11 suspected LRA forces looted 8 homes and then headed west towards the community of Niangara, DRC. During the looting, however, 2 men who had recently been abducted by the suspected LRA forces were able to escape unharmed.
