    Background: The leader of the Southern Sudan Liberation Movement, Major-General Joseph Lagu, began a four-day tour of Sudanese refugee camps in northern Uganda on Wednesday (May 3).

    He told his fellow-countrymen that they could return to their homes without fearing for their safety, following the Addis Ababa agreement signed on March 27, which ended 16 years of civil war in Sudan.

    He described the war as "a family quarrel" which must be forgotten, and said Sudan's President Jeafar El-Niemiry was the first northern Sudanese with the foresight to recognise the problem for what it was and so make a peaceful solution possible.

    About 80-thousand Sudanese refugees are living in Uganda. Most have been there for upwards of five years. Many are in United Nations settlement camps; others have settled in the country like Uganda citizens.
