African peacekeeping force recaptures rebel-held town

The commander of the African peacekeeping force in the Central African Republic said on Saturday his troops had recaptured the town of Sibut after it was seized by rebel fighters.

"As I speak, MISCA has taken control of the town of Sibut," General Tumenta Chomud told Central African state radio, referring to the peacekeepers.

"A Gabonese contingent from MISCA is in place in the town. It is clear that the Seleka fighters can be contained and they will be disarmed."
