JUST IN: Chadian Army Picks Late President’s Son, Mahamat Deby, As New Leader


Mahamat Deby, son of the late President Idriss Deby of Chad, has been named the new leader of the country.

The 37-year-old army general was appointed to lead a military council set up after his father was killed by rebel forces.

The late Chadian president was confirmed dead today after he sustained injuries in a fight with the rebels over the weekend.

Shortly after his death, the army established a transitional military council with his son named as the head.

A two-week national mourning period was also declared amid a dusk-to-dawn curfew.

Amid the battle against the rebel forces, the army has also shut the land and air borders “until further notice.”
