November 27, 2012, 9:00 GMT
The M23 rebels deny UN accusations they are backed by Uganda and Rwanda
Rebel forces have reportedly agreed to withdraw from the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo city of Goma, which they captured last week.
However, there are also reports of fighting in the area.
At an emergency meeting on Friday, regional leaders ordered the M23 rebels to leave Goma by Monday and senior commander Col Antoine Manzi has been quoted as saying they will now do so.
Some 500,000 people have fled their homes during seven months of fighting.
