More Ugandan cult atrocities revealed

Police in Uganda, investigating the mass killing of members of a doomsday cult, say they are examining another house owned by a senior cult member.

Over nine-hundred followers of the cult known as the Restoration of the Ten Commandments of God have so far been discovered in mass graves in the south-west of the country.

Police believe the house they're examining today , in the village of Sweswe, was used as a meeting place by cult members.

However officials have said that the excavation of suspected grave sites will only go ahead once they have more resources.

The Ugandan authorities have called for a day of prayer, on Sunday to remember the dead.
