BANGUI: Central African Republic's transitional parliament elected the mayor of Bangui, Catherine Samba-Panza, as interim president on Monday, with the task of ending months of sectarian killings and guiding the country to elections.

Samba-Panza, elected in a second-round run-off, replaces Michel Djotodia, the leader of the Seleka rebels who seized power in March. Djotodia stepped down on Jan. 10 under intense international pressure after failing to halt the inter-religious violence.
