UN: Central African Republic rebels will talk

The U.N. envoy in the Central African Republic says rebel groups that pulled out of a unity government and threatened to resume fighting if their demands weren't met by Wednesday are prepared to allow a little more time for negotiations.
Margaret Vogt told reporters after briefing the U.N. Security Council on Wednesday that the United Nations and neighboring countries who negotiated the January peace agreement that established the unity government are working hard on its implementation.
Col. Sylvain Bordas, a spokesman for the rebel coalition known as Seleka, said Sunday that it was stepping up the pressure on the government to fulfill the promises made under the peace accord.
The Security Council condemned recent rebel attacks by Seleka and expressed strong concern at deteriorating security.
