Central african republic rebels agree talks jan 2 2013 6

Chadian soldiers, part of a convoy of the FOMAC multinational force of central African states, man a position near Damara on January 2, 2013. The commander of the multinational African force FOMAC warned rebels in the Central African Republic against trying to take the key town of Damara, saying it would "amount to a declaration of war". Damara is the last strategic town between the Seleka rebel coalition and the capital Bangui, after the rebels seized much of the country in a three-week advance that began in the north and has brought them to within 160 kilometres (100 miles) of the capital, in the south.
