DR Congo troops ‘seize rebel camp’

The military in the Democratic Republic of Congo says it has captured a rebel camp in the east of the country from where many attacks were planned.

The camp, known as Madina, is in a forested area and was used for more than two decades by the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF).

Its capture is a significant setback for the rebels but comes at a heavy cost for the military.

On Sunday officials said at least 30 soldiers were killed in the fighting which also left 40 rebels dead.

Attacks against civilians have increased in recent months following the launch of an army offensive against the ADF in October.
