Central African Republic, Rebel Groups Initial a Peace Deal

Tuesday, 05 February 2019 07:38 AM EST

CAIRO (AP) — Central African Republic's government has initialed a peace deal with 14 armed groups following more than a week of talks in Sudan's capital.

President Faustin Archange Touadera is attending Tuesday's ceremony in Khartoum along with his Sudanese counterpart, Omar al-Bashir, and a representative of the African Union.

The agreement represents rare hope for the impoverished, landlocked nation where religious and communal fighting has continued since 2013. Thousands of people have been killed and hundreds of thousands displaced.

Details of the peace deal have not been announced, but Sudan's state media have reported that it focuses on power-sharing and transitional justice.

The United Nations has warned that the fighting in Central African Republic has carried a high risk of genocide. Scores of mosques have been burned. Religious leaders have been killed.
