The president of the Central African Republic, Faustin Touadera, has signed a peace deal with fourteen rebel groups.

It is aimed at ending six years of conflict in which more than one million people have been forced from their homes.

The ceremony took place in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum, and was attended by President Omar al-Bashir. The African Union announced that a deal had been reached over the weekend.

The latest crisis began in CAR in 2013 when a mainly Muslim rebel group seized power, prompting reprisals by other militias whose fighters were mostly Christian.

Several previous peace deals have broken down.
