Chad Foils Attempted Coup

THE government in Chad says security forces have foiled an attempt by a group of army officers to destabilise the country.

A statement said 11 army officers were involved.

The government said security services had been arresting people linked to the plot since 8 December.

It said the head of the plot was the president of the Chadian Human Rights Organisation, Baradine Berdei Targuio.

Chad has been relatively unstable since April last year when the long-time ruler Idriss Déby died after visiting the front line to fight rebels.

His son, Mahamat Idriss Déby, then seized power.
