TIMEFRAME expected from 2/15/2019, 12:00 AM until 2/16/2019, 11:59 PM (Africa/Ndjamena). COUNTRY/REGION N'Djamena

Event

The Mouvement patriotique du salut (MPS) political party is holding a rally at Idriss Mahamat Ouya stadium in N'Djamena until 17:00 (local time) on Friday, February 15, to denounce militancy in the north of the country. A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be expected near the demonstration site over the coming hours. US diplomatic authorities have advised individuals to refrain from driving on Avenue Felix Eboué between the traffic circle at Fontaine de l'Union and the intersection at Clinic Providence until 18:00, and to instead take the Corniche Road past the Hilton N'Djamena and Radisson Blu Hotel or use the Djamena-Moundou (Rue d'Istanbul) highway if traveling through the area.

Similar rallies are possible in N'Djamena over the near term amid a heightened security presence.

Context

The security situation remains poor in northeast Chad. Military operations are ongoing in the area targeting rebel convoys belonging to the Union des forces de la résistance (UFR) rebel group as of mid-February.

Advice

Individuals in N'Djamena are advised to avoid the demonstration site, prepare for localized traffic disruptions, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
