CENTRAL AFRICAN REPUBLIC-REBEL LEADER
Central African Republic: Ex-president re-elected head of rebel movement

Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Sunday, July 13, 2014 10:35 AM EDT
BANGUI, Central African Republic


A spokesman says Central African Republic's former president has been reinstated as head of a rebel movement notorious for human rights abuses.

Ahmat Mahamat Nedjad said Sunday that Michel Djotodia was re-elected as head of the mostly Muslim movement previously known as Seleka during a meeting in the northern town of Birao.

Djotodia became president last year after Seleka toppled the government.

He resigned in January amid international pressure. Though he fled to Benin, analysts believe he has stayed in contact with rebel commanders.

Christian militias have since sought revenge for Seleka abuses. The sectarian violence has left thousands dead.

In addition to appointing a political wing of more than 30 members, Nedjad said the rebels adopted a new name: The Popular Front for the Rebirth of Central African Republic.
