A Cantortc aid worker has been killed in northern Uganda.

The attack took place in the early hours of Saturday morning, along the Nimule-Adjumani road and was carried out by an unidentified armed group. Onen Joseph Clay was a Sudanese working with the US Catholic Relief Services as a driver and mechanic.

Since 1983 there has been a civil war in Sudan between the northern Islamic government and Christian and animist rebels in the south.

Church fights radio ban CATHOLIC leaders in Liberia filed a lawsuit against the government last week for banning the Church-run Radio Veritas from broadcasting.

In July, the government

informed the radio station that its authorisation to broadcast on shortwave frequencies had been withdrawn. The move left Radio Liberia, a station sympathetic to the government of President Charles Taylor, as the only news station that can be received in the West African nation. Taylor upheld the ban last week, telling journalists there would be no other shortwave stations in the country. The Church Lawsuit accuses the government of violating Liberia's constitution.

Radio Veritas was briefly shut down by the government last year on the grounds that it was "preaching filth to the public about the government"
