C.Africa insists president 'negotiating' with Kony

The Central African president insisted Friday he was negotiating with Joseph Kony after Washington rubbished claims the wanted Ugandan militia boss was personally involved in any talks.

Michel Djotodia is in contact with Kony, one of the world's most elusive war criminals, over the fate of the children and women enslaved by his Lord's Resistance Army, presidency spokesman Guy-Simplice Kodegue said.
