DR Congo army kills 25 rebels in fighting in the east

The army in the Democratic Republic of Congo says it has killed 25 rebel fighters since it launched an offensive against militia groups in the east of the country at the end of last month.

Seven government soldiers are also said to have been killed.

Hand-to-hand combat is reported in areas north-east of the city of Beni, in North Kivu province.

The Congolese military launched the operation from Beni, an area targeted by the Ugandan group, the Allied Democratic Forces, which has killed hundreds of people.
