UN force to 'attack other armed groups' in DR Congo

GOMA, DR Congo (AFP) - The United Nations on Tuesday announced that its troops will "attack other armed groups" in the Democratic Republic of Congo, after helping to defeat the M23 rebel force.

There is a "prospect of being able to attack other armed groups. Well, that's just what we are going to do," the head of UN peacekeeping operations, Herve Ladsous, said in the north-eastern city of Goma, capital of strife-torn North Kivu province.
