Democratic Republic of Congo troops were in a mopping up operation to rout the remaining pockets of the M23 rebel movement, after seizing their last stronghold in a push to finally break the back of the insurgency.
At least 36 people were killed after a twin-propelled passenger aircraft crashed upon landing in the Democratic Republic of Congo`s eastern city of Goma.
Congolese soldiers took control of Goma though the rebels who occupied it for two weeks continued to stake out positions just 3 kms away.
The M23 rebels on Saturday finally withdrew from the city of Goma which was under its control for over 10 days.
The UN Security Council voted unanimously to sanction the leaders of Congo`s M23 rebel force.
A rebel group created just seven months ago attacked the strategic provincial capital of Goma, home to more than 1 million people in eastern Congo.
