Uganda’s military has killed 309 people in an eight-month-old operation against cattle rustling in a northeast region rich in minerals including gold, limestone, and potentially oil, the armed forces said.

The Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF), the East African country’s military, said the deaths resulted from a push to quell violence by cattle rustlers in the Karamoja region since last July.

“The UPDF, working with other sister security agencies … will continue working together to completely pacify Karamoja and end all the criminality in the sub-region,” it said in a statement late on Tuesday.

It termed those killed as “warriors”, without elaborating.
