Simmering mess

KAMPALA—The leaders of Uganda, DR Congo and Rwanda have demanded that the M23 rebels stop their offensive and pull out of Goma in an ongoing joint conference meeting at Speke Resort Munyonyo in Kampala.

The rebels on Tuesday entered the main city of Goma in the mineral-rich east of the country despite efforts by government troops to stop them.

A column of rebel fighters entered the city from the main airport road, sweeping past government troops, and moved toward the centre of the city.
