Just In: Chad's newly re-elected President, Idriss Deby, shot dead while fighting rebels

Chad's President Idriss Deby is dead. He was reportedly shot dead while visiting troops on the front line of a fight against northern rebels. He was age 68. 



According to France24, an army spokesman, General Azem Bermandoa Agouna, confirmed his death in a state television on Tuesday, April 20, the day after Deby was declared the winner of a sixth term in office.

Deby's campaign said on Monday that he was headed to the front lines to join troops battling "terrorists". The Chadian army is currently combating rebel forces who have launched an assault on the capital, N’Djamena.
