Uganda nature reserve dispute turns deadly

At least one person killed when government evicts locals from protected land they claim as theirs.

At least one person has been killed in Uganda as government troops evict an estimated 6,000 squatters from a nature reserve where authorities say the people are living illegally.

The local people claim the property in question as their ancestral land and have accused the government of attempting to sell it to foreign developers.
