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.
