Arrests, injury in Chad protest


N’Djamena – Chadian police on Saturday shot a protester and arrested about 20 others defying a ban to demonstrat­e against the junta that took power after veteran ruler Idriss Deby Itno died fighting rebels.

Only a few dozen took to the streets in sporadic groups after military authoritie­s late on Friday banned the protest called by the Wakit Tama grouping of opposition political parties and civil society bodies.

“A single person was injured by a live bullet,” N’Djamena prosecutor Youssouf Tom said. –
