Chad court sentences ex-leader Habre, rebels to death
A court in Chad sentenced exiled former President Hissene Habre and several leaders of an eastern rebellion to death on Friday, the clerk of the criminal court in the capital N'Djamena said.

Habre has lived in exile since Idriss Deby, now Chad's president, overthrew him in 1990. Senegal is preparing to try Habre for alleged torture and political killings committed under his rule in Chad, a landlocked oil producing country in central Africa.
