Bangui - Central African Republic President Francois Bozize has sacked his son Jean Francis Bozize as defence minister and also sacked the army chief of staff, a decree read over state radio said on Wednesday.

Bozize earlier had criticised the army for failing to halt a rebel advance that had pushed back government soldiers to within 75 km (45 miles) of the capital Bangui.

A spokesman for the Seleka rebels said on Wednesday they had halted their advance to allow for peace talks. - Reuters
