CAR rebels expel govt ministers
Bangui: A grouping of former Seleka rebels in Central
African Republic said on Sunday it had expelled from
its ranks several members serving in a new government seeking to stop a cycle of
deadly clashes between Muslims and Christians. The decision casts doubt on the
future of the new Cabinet and could prove a major set
back for efforts aiming to end violence that has killed thousands, forced a million to flee their homes and split the country in two. “The ex-Seleka coalition neither supported nor put forward the names of the Prime Minister or ministers,” the group’s vice- president said.
