Chad's president Deby dies after three-decade rule

In tonight's special edition: Chad's president of three decades has died of wounds on the frontlines of a battle with rebels. News of his death came just hours after he was declared the winner of elections which would have given him another six years in power. He survived several rebellions and coup attempts whilst heading up a military regime. Despite his autocratic rule he was a key ally to western nations in the fight against extremism in the Sahel. There are concerns that Idriss Deby's death could now lead to local and regional instability.
