Central African Republic: Two-Day Ultimatum Expired, Seleka Rebels Mobilize

The two-day ultimatum issued by Seleka rebels to Central African Republic President Francois Bozize expired at midnight on Feb. 27, and the rebels began to mobilize, La Nouvelle Centrafrique reported. The ultimatum was for the release of prisoners jailed during the rebels' December 2012 advance and for the withdrawal of South African soldiers from the country. There are reports that the city of Sibut has been taken over by the rebels and that 1,700 rebels are moving toward Bangui. The Seleka rebels, who initially began an advance against Central African Republic towns and cities in December 2012 in an attempt to overthrow the president, agreed to a temporary cease-fire Jan. 10.
