France Will Fight You, Macron To Chadian Rebels As DébyIs Laid To Rest

Thousands of Chadians attended the state funeral of long-serving President Idriss Déby.

Idriss Déby was buried today, April 23 after he was killed earlier this week during a clash with rebels on April 20, 2021.

Among the foreign leaders there was France’s President Emmanuel Macron, for whom Chad is a key ally in the fight against jihadists in region.

Macron said:

“You lived as a soldier, you died as a soldier with weapons in hand.

“You gave your life for Chad in defence of its citizens.”

“We will not let anybody put into question or threaten today or tomorrow Chad’s stability and territorial integrity.”

Other visiting heads of state at Friday’s ceremony included the leaders of Guinea, Mali, Mauritania and Nigeria – who all ignored warnings from the rebels that they should not attend for security reasons.

Then Mr Déby’s remains were being flown to Amdjarass, a small village next to his hometown of Berdoba, more than 1,000 km (600 miles) from the capital, near the Sudanese border.
