UNITED NATIONS, United States (AFP) - The UN Security Council ordered sanctions against three Central African Republic leaders, including former president Francois Bozize, on Friday.

The leader of the anti-Balaka militia Levy Yakete and the number two of the Seleka militia Nourredine Adam were also targeted.

These targeted sanctions - an asset freeze and a travel ban - were anticipated in a January 28 UN resolution proposed by France and the United States.
