Topic: Eight dead in Central African Republic capital, rebel leaders flee city


By Emmanuel Braun BANGUI (Reuters) - At least eight people were killed in mob violence in Central African Republic's capital, Bangui, on Sunday as senior officers from the Seleka rebel movement fled the city, according to the country's Red Cross and a rights group. U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry warned on Sunday that Washington was prepared to impose targeted sanctions against those responsible for the religious-based violence [ID:nL2N0L100O]. We even had one woman whose throat was slit," Antoine Mbao Bogo, president of the country's Red Cross, told Reuters. It was not immediately clear why the rebel leaders, who were travelling in a convoy of more than two dozen vehicles, left Bangui or where they were heading.
