14 Peacekeepers die in CongoFourteen United Nations peacekeepers and five Congolese soldiers were killed Friday in an attack by anti-government forces, the world body said.

At least 50 more peacekeepers were injured in a clash involving troops of the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, known as MONUSCO, and allied FARDC forces.

The troops' operating base at Semuliki, in North Kivu province, has been struck repeatedly in recent months by anti-government rebels of the Allied Democratic Forces group.

Officials said the U.N. troops, known colloquially as "blue helmets," were mostly Tanzanian soldiers, MONUSCO said. U.N. officials called the event "a very huge attack, certainly the worse attack in recent memory."
