Democratic Republic of Congo rebels make territorial gains

The Democratic Republic of Congo is facing its most serious crisis for years as a growing band of mutinous soldiers advances in the east of the country.

The rebel movement calls itself M23, and is accused of rape, looting and recruiting by force.

It is also suspected of receiving support from neighbouring Rwanda.

Gabriel Gatehouse reports from the eastern town of Bunagana.
