Senegal puts ex-Chad dictator on trial for atrocities


DAKAR: Senegal prepared Monday to begin the trial of former Chadian dictator Hissene Habre, 25 years after he fled there following an eight-year bloodsoake­d reign of terror at home. Once dubbed “Africa’s Pinochet”, the 72-year-old has been in custody in Senegal since his arrest in June 2013. The trial will set a historic precedent.
