BANGUI - Central African Republic's army halted a rebel advance towards the capital Bangui on Friday, deploying an attack helicopter alongside ground troops to stop the insurgents' southward push, a senior regional military source said.

"The rebel column, which was headed south, was stopped by an aircraft ... an attack helicopter," the source told Reuters. "The rebels have not reached Bangui. We do not know where they are."
