Uganda reopened the Sudan border for food relief shipments to an estimated 2 million people facing starvation in southern Sudan, official Uganda radio said. The radio said that convoys carrying food to the famine-plagued south will be granted immediate passage to the largely rebel-held region but that once the food crosses the border, relief workers must negotiate with the rebels on distribution. Uganda closed the border Aug. 26 to protest attacks on government troops in northern Uganda by dissidents who they said were given sanctuary in southern Sudan.
