GULU, UGANDA MAY 26: A boy arrives at a shelter from his village as the sun sets on May 26, 2005 in Gulu, Uganda. He is one of about 20,000 night commuters that sleep in Gulu town every night, as they are afraid of being abducted by the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA). The rebel group has brought terror to Northern Uganda for almost twenty years, fighting the Ugandan government. The victims are usually children, which are abducted and used as child soldiers and sex slaves. Some children walk for hours from their home every day to sleep at Noah's Arch, an NGO housing children in Gulu. They are too afraid of sleeping in the villages. (Photo: Per-Anders Pettersson)..
