People queue at a polling station in Bangui to vote in the Central African Republic second round of the presidential and legislative elections on February 14, 2016Voters in the Central African Republic cast their ballots Sunday in delayed legislative elections and a presidential run-off which they hope will bring peace after the country's worst sectarian violence since independence in 1960. "It's crucial that people vote today," said Paterne, a voter in his 40s, as he queued at a polling station in the capital Bangui. The two men in the close presidential race are both former prime ministers who have campaigned on promises to restore security and boost the economy in the mineral-rich but dirt-poor country.

The warning came in the form of a letter, which was sent more than a year before the German carmaker's public admission that its cars had been equipped with software to manipulate emission test results, the sources said, raising questions about how much senior managers knew about the scandal. The U.S. Justice Department is suing the company for up to $46 billion for alleged violations of environmental law while regulators and prosecutors are looking to establish what role, if any, had been played by senior managers, including former Chief Executive Martin Winterkorn.
