N’DJAMENA, Chad (AP) — The rebel leader-turned-president of Central African Republic is at a regional summit where he’s expected to face renewed pressure to step aside less than a year after he seized power.

Michel Djotodia was installed as president after his rebel fighters stormed the capital of Bangui last March. The country has since deteriorated into near-anarchy.

Violence between Christians and Muslims left more than 1,000 people dead in December and nearly 1 million have fled their homes in fear.

Djotodia is attending a regional summit Thursday in the Chadian capital along with presidents from Chad, Congo and Gabon.

His spokesman has issued a statement denying rumors that Djotodia will step down at the meeting.

Djotodia’s critics say he has failed to stem the attacks blamed on his fighters.
