I just received another call from my friend Godfrey around 9:45pm telling me that the village of Areh in the hills off a Ring Road, a few miles from where he lives, and not far from Maza, is being attacked right NOW. Godfrey said that everyone from his neighborhood was out, the soldiers were there, and he would call when he had more details. When he calls I will put up more details. In the meantime, my prayers go out to the village of Areh….
I just called Godfrey again, and he said that he is on the streets of Anguwar Rukuba with soldiers and other youth. He said that soldiers are now at the village. Apparently one house has been burned. He’s not sure whether anyone was killed. He will put an update on his blog first thing in the morning. [If clicking on the link to his blog, please note that there is a graphic photo of a dead body on his last post.]
