Chadians under curfew after violence

Chad was placed under a curfew Thursday after rebel attacks that killed at least 100, reported the BBC.

The government-imposed curfew is for the capital, Ndjamena, and six provinces in the east and south.

Despite fears of more rebel attacks, life began to return to normal on Thursday, reported the New York Times, after an attempted coup and subsequent violence last weekend.

Tens of thousands of Darfur refugees and Chadians displaced by the violence remain in need of supplies and medicine.
