Over the past several days, several foreign embassies have issued updated travel advice and warnings for Chad in response to the deteriorating security situation in the country. The warnings follow the movement of a rebel group into northern Chad from Libya on 11 April. On 17 April, local officials issued a statement claiming to have repulsed militants in the Kanem Region, located 350 km (217 miles) north of the capital N’Djamena. The heightened tensions in Chad come as the country held its presidential elections on 11 April, with incumbent Idriss Deby likely to win a sixth term in office.http://msrisk.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Chad-Security-Update-19-Apr-2021.pdf">Download PDF Report
