Thomas Medishimiye, 2, sufering from malaria, sits on his bed next to his mother at Rutshuru hospital, now under control of M23 rebels some 75kms (48 miles) north of Goma, eastern Congo, Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012. Doctors Without Borders reported Congo's army now controls only the city of Goma and the village of Kibumba, 10 kilometers (six miles) outside Goma. Now the rebels hold all towns going north as far as Rutshuru and are threatening to besiege Goma. The U.N. Security Council on Thursday demanded that the M23 rebel group halt any advances toward Goma. (AP Photo/Jerome Delay)
