OTHER MAINSTREAM PRESS:

"Geoffrey Okot, a member of the Acholi tribe in northern Uganda, told the group his brother has been abducted. He doesn’t know whether his brother is still alive, but he said his only hope of seeing his brother again is if Coburn liftshis hold on the bill.

'Coburn, please listen to my cry,' Okot said."
