Evidence of Rwandan state support for M23 rebels 'credible and compelling', ministers say

British aid for Rwanda may be cut next month after ministers admitted there was "credible and compelling" evidence of Rwandan state support for rebels operating in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).

The rebels, known as the M23, conquered the eastern Congolese town of Goma this week, triggering an exodus of thousands of civilians and fears of a humanitarian crisis.

The UN's envoy, Roger Meece, said there had been numerous reports of rebels carrying out "summary executions of those who stand in their way" since they seized the town.
