The government of the Central African Republic (CAR) has signed an “immediate ceasefire” deal with rebel groups at a meeting in Italy’s capital, Rome, aimed at ending violence in the strife-torn country.
Under Monday’s accord, armed groups will be given representation in the political arena in exchange for an end to attacks and blockades, and their members will be brought into the country’s armed forces.
