The government of Chad issued a communique Thursday that said mercenaries from Sudan had crossed into Chad. The communique, sent out from the capital N’Djamena, said that Sudan had launched “several heavily armed columns” of “mercenaries”against Chad the day before, The Associated Press reported. Mercenaries is the term the Chadian government attributes to Chadian rebels backed by the Sudanese government, AP reports. Chad is still recovering from a failed attempt last month by rebels to overthrow President Idriss Deby’s regime. The fighting forced thousands to flee the capital, most of them going to the Cameroonian city of Kousseri, just across the river from N’Djamena.
