Uganda and rebels reach cease-fire after 19 years

Uganda and Lord's Resistance Army rebels have agreed to a truce to end their brutal, 19-year conflict, officials said Saturday. "We have agreed on the issues and put our signatures on the document," said Paddy Ankunda, spokesman for the Ugandan government's negotiating team in Juba, southern Sudan, where the peace talks were taking place. "We are happy, and now we will continue working for a comprehensive peace agreement," Ankunda told The Associated Press by telephone.
