Chad accuses Janjaweed of attack that left dozens dead

Chadian President Idriss Deby has accused Sudanese militiamen of being behind an attack on Thursday that left 36 dead near Chad's eastern border with Sudan.

"We are absolutely certain that the perpetrators were Janjaweed militias, but we still do not know the reasons for the attack,'' he told Radio France International.

President Deby said that the assailants, who attacked Chadian villages on horseback in the east of the country, were armed with new weapons, dressed in military uniform, and were supplied with plenty of ammunition:
"Who gave this to them, was it the Sudanese government or another, we will find out," Deby added.
