Uganda said on Tuesday its forces in Central African Republic (CAR) had clashed for the first time with fighters from Seleka, a mainly Muslim rebel force, killing 12, and would pursue them as part of a campaign against the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA). Paddy Ankunda, spokesman for Uganda People’s Defense Forces (UPDF) said, “Seleka had never tasted our fire, I think it was important that they taste our fire so that they are careful… they are in bed with LRA and we shall treat them as such.” Uganda is leading a 5,000-strong African Union regional force hunting down the rebels, widely known for their brutality, but has no specific mandate to confront Seleka.
