These dissensions and yesterday's violence are said to have created real tensions within their tribe, the Zaghawa and the army. Information denied yesterday by the Minister of Communication and government spokesperson, Chérif Mahamat Zène.

For the moment, no Chadian government official answers the phone and has been able to confirm the infiltration of the opponent. One of the few administrators we were able to reach said he was unaware, recalling that the army is acting with caution, as there are many relatives of Yaya Dillo armed to the teeth entrenched in his home.

The Chadian government has promised to speak out this afternoon. The Ndjamena prosecutor is due to give a press conference. The Minister of Foreign Affairs will then make a communication to the diplomatic corps.
