Rebel leader Michel Djotodia to review mining deals

Help

The rebel in charge of the Central African Republic has said he will look into mining contracts signed with South African and Chinese companies by the ousted leader.

Michel Djotodia said the new authorities would reconsider any deals that had been "badly done" and added that he ''would try to sort them out''.

He also promised to appoint a transitional government, and to step down at elections in 2016.
