Djotodia has accepted the outcome of a regional summit on the country's crisis, which called for the election of a new interim president following last month's coup, Prime Minister Tiangaye said today. Leaders at the summit refused to accept Djotodia's role as self-proclaimed president of the poor and strife-torn country after the ouster of elected president Francois Bozize by his rebel Seleka coalition almost two weeks ago.
