Central African Republic's interim President Michel Djotodia will face pressure to step down at a summit of regional leaders on Thursday amid frustration at his failure to quell his country's religious violence.Political sources in Bangui and French diplomatic sources said Djotodia was expected to step aside at the meeting of leaders from the Economic Community of Central African States (CEEAC) in the Chadian capital N'Djamena. CEEAC Secretary General Ahmat Allami said the group would tell Djotodia that his transitional government was not working.A source close to Djotodia told Reuters earlier that Central African leaders, led by Chad's Idriss Deby, had run out of patience with Djotodia's failure to end months of violence after his Seleka rebels seized power in March.
