Djotodia attends a ceremony marking the beginning of construction on a bridge destroyed during floods in BanguiBy Crispin Dembassa-Kette BANGUI (Reuters) - Central African Republic's mainly Muslim Seleka rebel group has reinstated Michel Djotodia as its leader, a spokesman said, months after international pressure forced him to step aside for failing to halt violence that erupted after he seized power last year. Djotodia's reinstatement risks complicating peace talks due to take place in the neighbouring Republic of Congo later this month between Seleka leaders and the 'anti-balaka' militia that they have been fighting against for months. Colonel Christian Djuma Narkoyo, deputy spokesman for Seleka's military wing, said founding military commanders Nourredine Adam and Mohamed Dhaffane had also been named as Djotodia's deputies during a Seleka meeting in the northern town of Birao, where Adam is based. Key political and religious groups have threatened to boycott the peace talks, saying their country's future should be resolved at home.

U.S. Federal Reserve Chair Yellen smiles at the inaugural Michel Camdessus Central Banking Lecture in WashingtonBy Robin Emmott BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Investors shift focus this coming week from trouble spots such as Portugal's biggest listed bank to a marathon testimony by the U.S. Fed chair that could help chart a global path towards post-crisis "normalization". Concerns about losses associated with the founding family of Banco Espirito Santo had threatened to rattle euro zone markets, but by Friday traders had decided that BES was unlikely to disrupt Portugal's financial system or revive broader worries about the bloc's weaker economies. In any case, Janet Yellen's two-day appearance in the U.S. Congress from Tuesday will dominate global markets, which want above all to know how long the Federal Reserve will leave interest rates low after an unprecedented period of cheap money since the financial crisis. While October is likely to mark the end of the central bank's money printing, investors are looking for hints of an interest rate hike early next year, which would signal a return to normality after the Great Recession and its aftermath.

This photo taken June 25, 2014, shows Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., questions Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew as he testifies at a Capitol Hill hearing examining the Financial Stability Oversight Council's annual report to Congress in Washington. Warren is quickly becoming a top Democrat fund-raising and campaigning powerhouse. Since March, she has stumped for candidates in Ohio, Minnesota, Oregon, Washington and Kentucky and has trips planned in July for West Virginia and Michigan. It’s a hefty schedule for a freshman senator who not long ago was teaching law at Harvard. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Sen. Elizabeth Warren is quickly becoming a top Democratic fundraising and campaigning powerhouse, hitting the road on behalf of candidates in key races the party will need to win to retain control of the U.S. Senate in November.
