DRC army preparing to attack Rwandan rebels

Army, with UN support, to attack Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda in east of DRC if they do not surrender.

    The Democratic Republic of Congo's (DRC) army says it is determined to finish the job of clearing all armed groups out of the east of the country.
     
    The largest remaining faction is the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR).
     
    The group includes members of the Hutu militia, who have been in the DRC for the last 20 years, that carried out the 1994 Rwanda genocide.
     
    The army says it will attack the FDLR, with UN support, within weeks, if they do not surrender.

    No, it wasn't because of WMDs, democracy or Iraqi oil. The real reason is much more sinister than that.
