UN sanctions for former president

A United Nations Security Council committee has imposed sanctions on Central African Republic's former president François Bozizé and two other men linked to the country's conflict after China and Russia withdrew their objections to the move.

It is the first time anyone linked to the crisis has been blacklisted since a UN sanctions regime for CAR was set up in December.

A travel ban and asset freeze have been imposed on all three men for "engaging in or providing support for acts that undermine the peace, stability or security of CAR".
