September 13, 1987|United Press International

KAMPALA, Uganda — Ugandan troops killed more than 150 anti-government rebels in a clash in northern Uganda, the official New Vision newspaper said Friday.

The paper quoted the commander of the national army's northern brigade, Pecos Kutesa, as saying the defense force had launched a major offensive in the north of the country "to clear the area of rebels." He said an army attack on a rebel camp last week marked the beginning of the new offensive.
