The UN on Friday said two Congolese refugee children aged four and eight were killed in a bus accident in south-western Uganda.
According to UNHCR said 34 other people were injured when a convoy of eleven buses transferred 837 refugees from a transit centre to another part of the country.
One of the buses, carrying 76 passengers, veered off the road in the district of Ibanda and overturned.
Initial information from the Red Cross, that 19 Burundian refugees had been killed, citing a local witness, turned out to be incorrect. (dpa/NAN)
