Uganda: The women stripping to defend their land

A group of elderly Ugandan women made headlines in April when they stripped before government ministers in a protest over land rights.

The women say the government plans to evict them as well as thousands of others from their ancestral lands - a claim the authorities deny.

It is one example of the many disputes over land that have emerged in northern Uganda since the end of the Lord's Resistance Army civil war.

Catherine Byaruhanga reports.
