DR Congo rebels threaten to retake Goma

The Democratic Republic of Congo's M23 rebel group warned on Saturday that it would not rule out recapturing the main eastern city of Goma if Kinshasa failed to stand by its international commitments.

"If the government does not comply with the (November 24) declaration of ICGLR (International Conference on the Great Lakes Region) heads of state, this allows us to alter our deployment and move positions back to Goma," M23 president Bertrand Bisimwa told AFP in Bunagana, a town on the border with Uganda.
