More about:

The M23 rebel movement has surrounded Goma, the capital of North Kivu province in the eastern DRC. Congolese government forces are fleeing and UN peacekeepers have pulled back to their military bases. 

The rebels, led by a wanted war criminal and supported by neighbouring Rwanda and Uganda, have more than enough fire power to capture and hold the city.

Here's a report from Dutch television.
