Head of the military junta and president of Chad, Mahamat Idriss Déby Itno, left N'Djamena on Sunday for a "friendship and working visit" to France.

The 37-year-old four-star general has been leading a Transitional Military Council (TMC) of 15 generals since the death of his father, Idriss Déby Itno, who ruled the country with an iron fist for 30 years, was announced on 20 April.
