Congo Rebels Possibly Looting Central Bank in Goma

Congo rebels appeared to be looting the central bank in Goma after refusing to withdraw from the city they captured last week.

M23 fighters surrounded the bank early this afternoon and were seen loading white bags into cars. The armed rebels looked nervous and ordered the Guardian to leave the area.

"They're looting the bank," a UN source said. Later another UN source denied that there had been money in the bags, insisting they were full of beans.
