The United Nations Security Council has condemned the capture of Goma in the Democratic Republic of Congo by M23 rebels.
A statement by the 15-member council said: "(The council) demands the immediate withdrawal of the M23 from Goma, the cessation of any further advances by the M23 and that its members immediately and permanently disband and lay down their arms."
UN experts claim Rwanda is behind the rebellion in eastern Congo and that Uganda has also aided M23.
Both countries deny the accusations.
