DR Congo army 'kills ADF rebels'

The Congolese army says it has killed 26 rebels from the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), which is believed to be linked to the Islamic State group.

The bodies of most of the dead were put on display in the town of Beni, where hundreds of people have been killed by the ADF over the past few years.

It was not clear whether all of the dead were Congolese, and at least one was reported to be a white man.

The ADF, which was initially made up of Ugandan Muslims, has operated in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo for the past two decades.
