YAOUNDE, Cameroon —  The Cameroon government says the ousted president of Central African Republic has fled to Cameroon and is seeking "temporary" refuge before going to another country.

Cameroon's Secretary-General Ferdinand Ngoh Ngoh said Monday that Central African Republic President Francois Bozize has sought refuge in Cameroon.

Ngoh Ngoh said Cameroon wants to see a quick return to peace and stability in the Central African Republic.

Rebels seized the capital of Central African Republic, Bangui, on Saturday.
