Goma, Democratic Republic of Congo - M23 rebels have held their official handover ceremony marking the end of the occupation of Goma in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).
"We are leaving Goma, the officials are leaving and the police are leaving," General Sultan Makenga, head of M23 army, said on Saturday.
"The fight is over now," he said, adding: "We are showing that we are respecting our commitment. I think Kinshasa will also respect this commitment."
Makenga said, however, that if Kinshasa did not honour their commitment, "we are not very far and we can come back".
Makenga said around 100 soldiers will stay around the airport.
