Rebels in the Democratic Republic of Congo have seized the strategic town of Rutshuru in the east of the country.

Government forces reportedly retreated as the rebels advanced.

On Friday, 600 Congolese soldiers were reported to have fled into Uganda after M23 rebels seized the DRC side of the border town of Bunagana.

The rebels, loyal to renegade General Bosco Ntaganda, who is wanted for war crimes by the International Criminal Court, took up arms in April.
