The army in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which has defeated the M23 rebels, says it is planning an offensive against other armed groups in the east of the country. Lieutenant Colonel Olivier Amuli said operations are being planned, but they cannot yet be announced. Earlier this week, Congolese government spokesperson Lambert Mende said the M23 was at the top of the list, followed by the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda, the FDLR. RFI spoke to Jason Stearns, an analyst with the Rift Valley Institute on the line from Kinshasa.
