CAR probes rights abuses under Bozize

The Central African Republic's interim government has opened a probe into human rights abuses committed under ousted president Francois Bozize, Justice Minister Arsene Sende said Saturday.

The minister told national radio he had instructed prosecutors to open an investigation "because crimes and other grave human rights violations were committed and continue to be committed by ex-president Francois Bozize and some of his allies."

At the same time, President Jacob Zuma has taken part in the first meeting of the International Contact Group on the situation in the Central African Republic.

Zuma and a delegation including Minister of State Security, Siyabonga Cwele, was invited to the meeting by the President of the Republic of Congo.

They discussed decisions regarding political, security and humanitarian issues in the CAR.

Zuma has offered help from South Africa to return the situation in CAR to normalcy.
