DR Congo: More M23 fun and games in Goma - Not

Press TV reports. This sort of got neglected by me in the Christmas rush and events and as consequence this is more for the record as I suspect events will have moved on some what.

The governor of North Kivu province of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) says that March 23 (M23) movement rebels are trying to terrorize the people of the provincial capital Goma.

"The M23 wants to keep the population of Goma on edge to put pressure on Kampala" in Uganda, where delegates from the Congolese government and the M23 rebel group are negotiating, AFP quoted Julien Paluku as saying on Monday.

Paluku noted that the rebels were maintaining "pressure to show that at any moment, if this or that isn't done in Kampala, they will take Goma."
