About 250 people have been stricken with sleeping sickness in the Kamuri district of eastern Uganda and nine have died, the government-run newspaper New Vision said Friday.

The outbreak is due to an infestation of tsetse flies in the area over the last six months and the number of victims is expected to grow, the biweekly paper said.
