The rebels, who began their campaign a month ago and have taken several key towns and cities, have accused Central African Republic leader Francois Bozize of failing to honor a 2007 peace deal. The sign reads in French 'The seductive city of Damara welcomes you and wishes you a pleasant stay.' AFP PHOTO/ SIA KAMBOU (Photo credit should read SIA KAMBOU/AFP/Getty Images)
