Former leader of Chad to face trial
A court in Senegal has ordered former Chadian President Hissene Habre to stand trial for alleged war crimes, torture and crimes against humanity.
Judges at the Extraordinary African Chamber said there was sufficient evidence against Mr Habre, who is in custody in Senegal.
The court was set up by Senegal and the African Union to try Mr Habre after his arrest in 2013.
His trial will mean the first use of universal jurisdiction in Africa.
Mr Habre, now 72, is accused of thousands of political killings during his 1982-90 presidency, which ended when he was deposed by the current Chadian President, Idriss Deby.
He denies the charges and refuses to recognise the legitimacy of the court.
In 2008, Mr Habre was sentenced to death in absentia by Chad for leading an armed rebellion in the country earlier that year.
