BANGUI, Central African Republic — A rebel leader from Chad, known by his nickname "The Father of the Bush," has turned himself in to authorities in the capital of the neighboring Central African Republic, official said.

Firmino Fererra, the chief of staff of the Central African Republic's official mediator, confirmed to The Associated Press that Gen. Baba Ladde, who heads the rebel Popular Front for Recovery, or FPR, had arrived in Bangui and was at a hospital receiving treatment.

Ladde had announced on his Facebook page last Thursday that he was in the CAR for the purpose of relaunching negotiations with the government.

Fererra said that a meeting was being held Monday to discuss the guarantees that the rebel leader would like to have from Chad before agreeing to return to Chad.
