Rebels fighting the government in the Central African Republic have signed a formal ceasefire following talks in Gabon.

The rebels and president agreed to the formation of a unity government, which will reportedly be formed on Saturday.

The Seleka rebel alliance took control of northern and eastern CAR in a four-week offensive starting on 10 December.
