M23 rebels goma 20120711

Rebels of the M23 group man their position on a hill overlooking Bunagana, a town near the Ugandan border on July 8, 2012. Mutineers from the Democratic Republic of Congo on Sunday seized control of three towns in the country's eastern Nord-Kivu province, an AFP correspondent reported today. The rebels, known as M23, took Rutshuru and the towns of Ntamugenga and Rubare, less than 10 kilometres away on the road to the provincial capital Goma, shortly after 12:00 pm local time.
