Event

On Saturday, August 25, the Chadian military announced it had deployed additional forces to the country's border with Libya to prevent incursions from rebel groups operating in Libya. Local reports indicate that military planes were deployed to the town of Faya-Largeau (Borkou region). A heightened security presence is to be anticipated in Chad's northern regions in the near-term. Clashes between security forces and armed groups are possible in the coming days.

Advice

Individuals in Chad are advised to monitor developments to the situation and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.

In general, due to the high terrorist threat, individuals in Chad are advised to report any suspicious objects or behavior to the relevant authorities and remain vigilant at all times, especially when visiting sites deemed particularly likely to be targeted in an attack (e.g., public transportation, train stations, airports, public or government buildings, embassies or consulates, international organizations, schools and universities, religious sites, markets, hotels and restaurants frequented by foreigners/Westerners, festivals, etc.). For these and other security reasons, many Western governments advise against all travel to areas near the borders with Niger, Libya, Sudan, Central African Republic, Cameroon, and Nigeria, and the Lake Chad region, as well as nonessential travel to the rest of the country, including N'Djamena. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel to or within the country.
