BREAKING: France makes fresh air strikes against rebel incursion into Chad

The Address | Benghazi – Libya

PARIS – French warplanes have carried out fresh attacks against an armed convoy which crossed into Chad from Libya, after initial strikes over the weekend failed to halt its advance, the French army said Wednesday.

Acting in conjunction with Chad’s government, French Mirage 2000 jets targeted the convoy again on Tuesday and Wednesday, destroying about 20 of roughly 50 pickup trucks the rebels started out with, the armed forces said in a statement.
