Al Jazeera on the Zeghawa Tribe of Chad

Al Jazeera English has an informative video on the Zeghawa tribe of Chad and their influence in Chad and Sudan. Chadian President Idriss Deby hails from this tribe, and its members make up a large portion of the Chadian army. The Zeghawa also have interests in Darfur; they are thus a key part of Deby’s political base but also a political force he must deal with carefully.
