DR Congo army launches offensive against ADF rebels

The attack comes as a response to an ambush on a UN base in North Kivu that killed 15 peacekeepers.

    The Democratic Republic of Congo's military has launched an operation against a Ugandan rebel group who call themselves, "The Allied Democratic Forces", commonly known as the ADF. The ADF is suspected of killing 15 Tanzanian UN peacekeepers in December.
