TO GO WITH STORY BY XAVIER BOURGOIS A Seleka fighter poses on July 25, 2013 at the Bangui firefighters barracks, turned into a Seleka base. The transition in Central African Republic, overrun by rebels in March, must not exceed 18 months, the African Union warned last week. 'The transition in CAR is not meant to last more than 18 months' until free and fair elections are held, the AU's peace and security chief Ramtane Lamamra said. That would mean the mineral-rich nation would have to hold polls by September 2014 at the latest. A rebel coalition known as Seleka seized power on March 24, forcing President Francois Bozize to flee. AFP PHOTO / XAVIER BOURGOIS (Photo credit should read XAVIER BOURGOIS/AFP/Getty Images)
