ADDIS ABABA, March 24 The head of the African
Union commission strongly condemned the seizure of power by
rebels in the Central African Republic on Sunday and called for
member nations to take unified and decisive action.
"African Union statutes envisage, in the case of an
anti-constitutional change of power, the country's suspension
from AU activities, the complete isolation of those responsible
and the adoption of sanctions against them," African Union
Commision Chairwoman Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma said in a statement.
