Chad’s President Idriss Deby said its border with Central African Republic had been closed pending an end to intercommunal violence there that has killed thousands and forced nearly one million people to flee their homes. Thousands of French and African troops have failed to stop the waves of killings that erupted after the predominantly Muslim Seleka rebel movement seized power in the majority-Christian former French colony in March 2013. Deby said the 1,000-km frontier would remain open to Chadian citizens wishing to return home. Chad, previously at the heart of African efforts to stabilize the neighboring country, withdrew its forces from Central African Republic last month.
