Kamango.

The ADF is based in mineral-rich eastern DR Congo, where numerous armed groups h ave caused havoc over the past two decades. The huge number of refugees came in so quickly that the government and aid worke rs are still working out what to do, says the BBC's Catherine Byaruhanga in Bund ibudgyo, on the Ugandan border with the DRC. Long wait No food or adequate shelter has been distributed to the refugees. Many had to sl eep out in the open in school compounds, or on the verandas of shops, she says. The ADF was formed in 1996 by a puritanical Muslim sect in the Ruwenzori mountai ns of western Uganda. In 1998 it increased its activities and a number of bomb blasts in markets and r estaurants in Kampala were blamed on the group. After years of sporadic raids, the Ugandan army almost destroyed the ADF's capac ity in 2004 and it moved into DR Congo. However, a United Nations report last year said the rebels had expanded their mi litary capacity and established links with Somalia's al-Shabab militants. Source: BBC
