DRC rebels continue their advance
Rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo have taken swathes of new territory in the country's mineral rich east over the last few days. The M23 Movement, which a UN panel of experts says is being backed by neighbouring Rwanda, took the towns of Bunagana, Kiwanja and Rutshuru, as the Congolese army deserted positions. France 24 has visited all these locations in recent days, experiencing first hand the euphoria of the rebels, together with the dejection and fear of civilians.
