At least four people were killed during a gunfight in the Chadian capital late on Wednesday in what authorities said was a failed coup attempt against President Idriss Deby, security sources said on Thursday.

"Between four and eight people were killed in fighting at a military barracks in the east of N'Djamena," one of the police sources said, requesting not to be identified.

Another military source said at least a dozen people were killed in separate clashes in a residential neighbourhood. The military officer said a list of future government officials was discovered there.
