Jail terms over death of Chad leader's son Brahim Deby

BBC News A French court has jailed four men over an attack in which the son of Chadian President Idriss Deby died near Paris in 2007.

The four were found guilty of 'robbery leading to death without intention to kill'. They received prison sentences ranging from five to 13 years.

Brahim Deby was found dead in the car park of his block of flats.

The 27-year-old had choked to death after being sprayed with chemicals from a fire extinguisher."
