Seven cattle rustlers have been shot dead by members of the Arrow Boys militia in Katakwi District.

The UPDF 3rd Division spokesperson, Lieutenant Henry Obbo, says the cattle rustlers were killed shortly after they stole ten goats from Palam parish in Katakwi. He says they were pursued and killed in a brief shootout at the Katakwi-Moroto border, where they had stopped to slaughter the animals.

The Arrow Boys recovered three goats and two sub-machine guns from the rustlers.
