Ugandan troops have killed 41 attackers in a major battle with tribal gunmen in a western district near the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo, an army spokesman said Sunday.The clashes came hours after the army announced it had killed a person suspected of involvement in an attack by Muslims on a church in the border region two weeks ago, during which a woman was decapitated by suspected Muslim attackers and her head placed on the altar.That attack in turn prompted retaliatory attacks against Muslims by Christians, according to Ugandan media reports.Both the army and police denied the attacks were related to any rebel group, instead blaming local tribal and communal tensions.
