Pact for Central African Republic

LIBREVILLE, Gabon — Central African Republic President Francois Bozize and the rebels who sought to overthrow him have reached a deal that will allow him to stay in office until his term ends in 2016, officials said Friday.

The announcement came after several days of peace talks in Gabon, organized after an alliance of rebels groups swept through the north of the country and seized control of a dozen towns.
