UN Special Envoy: Fighting has ceased in Bangui, but situation is not "irreversible"

Listen /

Lieutenant General Babacar Gaye

Fighting in Bangui has stopped and the situation is improving, according to the UN Secretary-General's Special Representative in the Central African Republic (CAR).

Driving on the streets of capital city on Thursday, Lieutenant General Babacar Gaye described the scene before him over the phone to UN Radio.

CAR has been thrown into turmoil since Séléka rebels launched attacks a year ago and forced President François Bozizé to flee in March.

Although things were returning to normal in Bangui, he told Jocelyne Sambira, the situation was not "irreversible".
