Two rival groups at the centre of two years of violence in Central African Republic, have signed a peace deal in Nairobi.

Kenya's President Uhuru Kenyatta oversaw talks between the mostly Muslim Seleka and mainly Christian anti-balaka groups.

But some are doubtful this agreement will mark the end of a cycle of bloodshed that has convulsed the country.

Neither the UN nor Central African Republic's interim President, Catherine Samba-Panza, were involved in the talks.

While the leaders of both of the parties in Nairobi have previously admitted, they don't exercise full control over fighters on the ground.

We look at the prospect for peace in Central African Republic. And how close two divided communities are to reconciliation.
