A peace deal between the government of the Central African Republic (CAR) and 14 rebel groups has been struck after talks in Sudan, officials say.
The deal was announced by the UN mission in CAR, known as Minusca, and the African Union (AU), which both sponsored the talks in Khartoum.
“This is a great day for Central African Republic and all its people,” said AU commissioner Smail Chergui.
The government said the peace deal would be signed in Bangui soon.
Details of the agreement have not been released and analysts caution that previous peace deals have all collapsed.

Les circonstances lui donnent désormais la chance de forcer le destin pour se faire élire à la tête du Sénégal.
