DR Congo: M23 rebels threaten to march on Goma


Mutineer soldiers in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo have threatened to march on the key city of Goma if attacks against civilians in the city do not stop.

One of their leaders said the civilians were being targeted for their alleged allegiance to neighbouring Rwanda.

The rebels - who took up arms in April - named themselves "M23" after a failed peace agreement signed on 23 March three years ago.

They are supporters of renegade General Bosco Ntaganda, who is wanted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court.
