The prisoners are believed to have fled into the Mount Moroto hills
More than 200 prisoners have escaped from a jail in north-east Uganda, officials say, bringing the local town to a standstill while security forces try to track them down.
The inmates reportedly killed a soldier after they broke out of the facility in Moroto before heading for the hills.
An army spokesperson said two inmates had been captured and two killed.
The prison facility is built on the foothills of Mount Moroto, on the edge of the town. Local reports say the shoot-out has brought business in Moroto to a standstill.
Moroto is the biggest town in Karamoja, a restive region with a history of cattle rustling and gun violence, the BBC’s Patience Atuhaire reports from Kampala.
A government disarmament program in the early 2000’s took most of the guns out of the hands of civilians, but sporadic clashes between different communities have continued to happen, our correspondent notes.

Army offensive lineman headbutts coach who is almost knocked off his feet (Video)
An Army offensive lineman got a little overzealous with his emotions and headbutted one of his coaches who looked like he took a punch from Deontay Wilder.
Football is a physical game. But it’s best when the physicality is kept between the sidelines and, you know, doesn’t involve players headbutting their own coaches — who aren’t wearing helmets.
Army senior offensive lineman Mike Johnson came off the field with a lot of emotion and it got the better of him when he delivered a headbutt to one of his coaches when he came to the sideline. Johnson is listed at 6-foot-3 and 285 pounds.

The coach was left wobbly like he just took a haymaker from heavyweight boxer Deontay Wilder, Jr. on the chin and had to regain his composure. It was an accident, and I’m sure, if there was audio, we would have heard No. 59 profusely apologizing for misinterpreting things.
But why would he think his coach was coming to give him an agreed-upon-headbutt?
Under no circumstance would be headbutting anyone without a helmet make sense. It doesn’t make sense when both are wearing helmets either.
I have a headache just watching this clip a few times and am going to take a handful of ibuprofen just in case. For the coach on the receiving end, that’s definitely going to leave a mark. Hopefully, he’ll be okay and won’t be in the concussion protocol after a nasty head-to-helmet collision.Next: 50 best college football teams of all time
