Marabout in Kouno Chad

Security forces in Chad killed 12 followers of a Muslim spiritual leader who was threatening to launch a holy war from a southern village in defence of the Islamic faith. Two members of the security forces were also killed and seven other people were wounded when government forces clashed on Sunday with hundreds of supporters of the "marabout" or holy man at Kouno, 300 km (185 miles) southeast of N'Djamena Reuters
