Rebel forces in the Central African Republic said Saturday that they had entered the capital Bangui and called on the army not to fight them and for the president to leave.

The claim by rebel spokesman Eric Massi came after a regional stabilisation force commander said explosions and gunfire were heard on the outskirts of the city.
