    Most recent report I could find on our archive is from May 3 - it has featured very little in world news in the past year:

    N'DJAMENA: Chadian authorities arrested two senior generals and a member of parliament allied to President Idriss Deby on suspicion of involvement in a foiled coup plot that security sources said left at least four people dead.
    The incident has pointed to high-level divisions in the oil-producing nation that has sought to leave behind a turbulent past to become an ally of the West against al-Qaeda-linked militants across Africa's arid Sahel region. Chad has a long history of political instability and Deby himself led rebel troops into the capital N'Djamena in 1990 to seize power. But the landlocked nation started producing oil a decade ago and Deby has since won four elections in a row.
    Prosecutor Mahamat Saleh Youssouf said a group of armed men tried to "destabilise the institutions of the republic" on Wednesday but the attempt was suppressed and several military and civilian officials were arrested.
    Youssouf named the detained generals as Weiddig Assi Assoue, who has served as a government minister, and Ngomine Beadmadji David, head of the military justice system.
    Mahamat Malloum Kadre, a member of parliament for the ruling coalition, and opposition figure Saleh Maki had also been taken into custody, the prosecutor said.
    A police source, who asked not to be identified, said four to eight people had been killed in fighting at a military barracks in the east of N'Djamena on Wednesday. - Reuters
