Thousands of people have joined celebrations in the Central African Republic following the resignations of interim president Michel Djotodia and his prime minister Nicolas Tiangaye.
Mr Djotodia caved in to international pressure to stand down after failing to stop inter-religious violence which has left thousands dead and more than one million people displaced since he claimed power last March.
The departures were announced in a statement issued after a two-day summit in neighbouring Chad. It confirmed talks to decide on new leadership will take place in the Central African Republic.
The departure of the Central African Republic's interim president sparked scenes of joy, but fears of a power vacuum in the warring nation.
Security in the Central African Republic, where even young children have been targeted in a bitter civil war, appears to be deteriorating.
ITV News has found evidence that children are being targeted in one of Africa's bloodiest civil wars.
