Chad: LWF evacuation

The Lutheran World Federation evacuated most of its development staff in a number of Chadian towns around Koukou after attacks by the rebel group Union of Resistance Forces, which operates from neighbouring Sudan.

Rebels seized several eastern areas, including Am Dam, the capital of Djourf Al Ahmar, and the cities of Goz Beida and Am Timan.

The rebels hope to unseat Chadian President Idriss Deby.
