Congo rebels say they will leave captured Goma

Members of the Democratic Republic of the Congo's M23 rebel movement said Wednesday they would withdraw from the captured city of Goma in line with a demand by regional leaders and the African Union.

The M23 forces will pull back to a position 20 kilometers (12 miles) north of Goma, officers and soldiers from the group told CNN.

    Is that supposed to give the people of Goma a warm fuzzy feeling? And how bizzare is it when people are fighting and one side asks the other to move back and they say ok?!? If youve come that far in your battle, why not sit down and discuss your problems?
