C. African Republic ceasefire deal reached
Central African Republic's government and rebels have agreed to a temporary ceasefire deal, two rebel sources with knowledge of the talks told Reuters on Thursday. One of the sources, who is present at the negotiations in Gabon's capital Libreville, said Central African Republic President Francois Bozize would propose a national unity government with the Seleka rebel coalition.

 

It was not immediately clear if the rebels would accept the unity government proposal, having previously said Bozize's resignation was a precondition for peace. (Reuters)
