From Morning Report, 7:45 am on 19 June 2023

37 children were killed and many more were injured in an attack at a school in Western Uganda on Friday.

Six more were abducted to carry food stolen from the school by the gunmen.

The rebels involved in the attack have been linked to the Islamic State group, and the attack is being blamed on the Allied Democratic Forces, based in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
