A rebel alliance in the Central African Republic has taken control of another town in Central African Republic.
The rebel coalition known as Seleka captured the town of Batangafo on Thursday, 300 kilometers north of the capital, Bangui. It is the seventh town that rebel fighters have seized in the past week.
The rebels say their fast-moving offensive is aimed at ousting President Francois Bozize. On Wednesday the United Nations Security Council condemned the attacks, saying the fighting is a threat to civilians and C.A.R. stability.
