  The fire that killed 330 churchgoers in rural Uganda on March 17 was the culmination of a horrifying crime: a series of mass murders directed at pious believers in the Ten Commandments. Authorities investigating the fire found another 155 corpses in a residential compound run by the Movement for the Restoration of the Ten Commandments. Yet another church property yielded 153 dead bodies. Then 81 bodies were pulled from a mass grave. All told, more than 700 people were killed--apparently by the two leaders of the sect.

Washington Post photographer Dudley M. Brooks tells the story in his words and photographs.
