Amudat, Northern Uganda – In a tragic incident, a lightning strike killed two pupils and injured 12 others at Akorikeya Primary School in Abiliyep sub-county, Amudat district.

The pupils, aged between 13 and 15, were struck while playing in the school compound during a heavy downpour around 5:30 pm on Friday.

George Owanyi, the Amudat Resident District Commissioner (RDC), confirmed the incident and reported that the injured pupils are currently admitted and responding to treatment.
