Diplomats told Reuters on Wednesday, that Russia and China have blocked a proposal by the United States and France to impose U.N. sanctions on Central African Republic's former President Francois Bozize and two other people linked to the conflict there. According to an eight-page letter to the U.N. Security Council's sanctions committee on Central African Republic, which was obtained by Reuters, the proposal to sanction Bozize, in particular, was due to his "engaging in or providing support for acts that undermine the peace, stability or security of CAR."
