Latest update : 2009-05-17

Chad President Idriss Deby Itno Saturday said his country would "finish once and for all" with Chadian rebels staging attacks from Sudan. France has expressed concern, calling for the nation to 'avoid escalations.'

AFP - Chad President Idriss Deby Itno Saturday said his country would "finish once and for all" with Chadian rebels staging attacks from Sudan and had the right to pursue them in the neighbouring country.
  
"We have used our right to pursue and that right to pursue will continue with the support of the Chadian people," the president told journalists.
  
"The army has decided to finish once and for all with the mercenaries in the pay of Sudan."
  
Sudan accused Chad of mounting a second series of air strikes on its territory on Saturday and said the conflict between the African neighbours must be resolved politically.
  
UN deputy secretary general Haile Menkerios meanwhile told AFP on Saturday the Chadian government must open negotiations with the rebels.
