Mutineer soldiers in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo have threatened to march on the key city of Goma if attacks against civilians in the city do not stop.

One of their leaders said the civilians were being targeted for their alleged allegiance to neighbouring Rwanda.

He denied allegations made by the UN and Congo's government that the ethnic Tutsi rebel group was backed by Rwanda.

Earlier, the UN said peacekeepers were being redeployed to Goma.
