Rebels remain in Goma as deadline ends

27 November 2012, 11:47

Goma - Rebels believed to be backed by Rwanda and Uganda have let a midnight deadline for their withdrawal expire in this key eastern Congolese city that they seized last week.

Trucks loaded with fighters belonging to the eight-month-old M23 rebel group patrolled the empty streets of this regional capital, as the ultimatum issued by the regional bloc representing Central Africa's Great Lakes region ended in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

The rebels announced on Monday that they plan to move their headquarters to this city of one million later this week, another sign that they do not intend to respect the demands of mediators.

The Congolese government is acknowledging that it has entered talks with the rebels who handed DRC’s military its most humiliating defeat in a decade.
