The United Nations on Tuesday gave M23 rebel forces 48 hours to leave the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo city of Goma or face "the use of force."

A new intervention brigade will be used for the first time to help the DR Congo army set up a "security zone" in the city, which has come under renewed threat from the rebel forces in recent weeks, the UN said.
