Fighting Casualties

Congolese troops were fighting back on Thursday against rebels who rejected calls from African leaders to leave the eastern city of Goma. Thousands of people fled the area of clashes around the town of Sake, as M23 rebel fighters rushed from Goma to reinforce their positions there against a counter-offensive by the army.
