200 killed in Ugandan cattle feud

AT LEAST 200 people have been killed in a cattle raid between rival ethnic groups in a remote region of north-east Uganda.

The Bokora ethnic group attacked a village of the Matheniko people in Karamoja last week, stealing hundreds of heads of cattle in revenge for a similar raid on its livestock in July.
