Congo rebels set demands for Goma withdrawal

Rebels in Democratic Republic of Congo issue their ultimatum -- they will end their occupation of the city of Goma if the government accepts their demands. Jean-Marie Runiga is political head of the so-called M23 rebels. He says the group would withdraw only if the government held national talks, released political prisoners and dissolved the electoral commission. The Congolese government rejected the demands - dismissing them as a farce. The rebels - who the U.N. said are backed by Rwanda - captured the eastern city of Goma last week. After an eight-month insurgency, deadlock could lead to all out war - in an area plagued by two decades of conflict that killed more than five million people.
