Report: C.A.R. leader fled to Cameroon

Central African Republic President Francois Bozize is in Cameroon after rebels took his country's capital on Sunday, Cameroon state TV reported Monday.

Bozize is seeking refuge in Cameroon but hoping to move to another country, the report says.

Bozize fled the Central African Republic's capital, Bangui, after rebels seized control of the city, a government official said Sunday. A written statement from an official with the Seleka rebels referred to Bozize as the country's former president and urged residents of the landlocked country to remain calm and prepare themselves to welcome rebel forces.
