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.

    Troops are targeting members of the ADF near the town of Beni, in Congo's North Kivu province.
