Indian troops, others under UN mission act against militants in Congo
Indian Army troops along with personnel from some other countries, deployed in the Democratic Republic of Congo as part of a UN mission, repulsed a militant attack on Wednesday in the central African nation, Indian officials said.
''On May 22, an inimical armed group launched unprovoked fire and attack on FARDC (Congolese Army) and MONUSCO positions. The Indian Army and troops of other nationalities under the UN flag repulsed the attackers through swift and concerted firepower,'' an Indian Army official said on Thursday.
''The Indian Army contingents continue to maintain a strong deterrent posture to deter any further hostile action towards strategic towns and roads, as well as to protect the local population,'' he said.
