C. African rebels vow to respect peace deal

The leader of the Central African rebel coalition Seleka, whose fighters have seized the capital, said they would respect a peace deal signed in January. "We are still keeping to the spirit of Libreville," Michel Djotodia told Radio France Internationale (RFI) on Sunday, referring to the city in Gabon where the peace accord was signed. Opposition figure Nicolas Tiangaye, appointed prime minister to lead a national unity government as part of the deal between the rebels and president Francois Bozize, would remain in post.
