M23 goma 15

Congolese police officer is seen through a hole on the wall of a cell at Muzenze prison on November 21, 2012 in Goma. Almost all inmates of Goma's main prison managed to break out after prison warders abandoned their positions to flee from advancing M23 rebels two days ago. The M23 rebel group in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which says it now controls all of Goma and nearby crossing points on the border with Rwanda vowed today it would not stop at Goma, after seizing the key eastern city this week. A spokesman for the M23 rebel group in the Democratic Republic of Congo called Wednesday for President Joseph Kabila to step down, saying he was not the legitimate winner of elections last year.
