Chad Wants Refugees Out

Chad Wants Refugees Out
(edit this)
February 13, 2008
Nouradin Koumakoye, Prime Minister of Chad, warned Sudan’s government that if the refugees from that country are not transferred elsewhere, he would expel them. He claims that the presence of Darfurian refugees is fomenting violence. He insists they are a destabilizing force, which led to the Chadian rebels recent attack on the capital city. Over the weekend 12,000 more refugees fled to Chad following an attack on their villages in Darfur.

Commander in Chad of the EU force, Brig. Gen. Jean-Phillippe Ganascia, said that had the EU peacekeepers been in place, they would not have intervened in Chad’s internal conflict. He hoped the initial units would arrive by the end of February and the entire force within three months.
