Bangui - Hundreds of rebels who helped overthrow the former president of Central African Republic are gathering in the capital to be sure their demands are met by the new leader.

The country's new leader Michel Djotodia has begun the process of putting together a new government, though critics say he lacks control over the rebels in the streets.

Nearly 400 Seleka rebels gathered near the Renaissance Palace in Bangui on Monday to demand that Djotodia pay them bonuses they say they were promised. Another hundred also went to the luxury hotel where Djotodia is running the government.

The rebels, an alliance known as Seleka, have been accused of looting, violence and robberies since helping to overthrow the president at the end of March.
