Chad's opposition leader out of hiding

Africast "Chad said a key opposition figure came out of hiding Friday and that his reappearance was a sign the government was not cracking down on dissidents after a coup attempt.
Rights groups have accused the government of using the rebellion as a pretext to clamp down on journalists and arrest peaceful political rivals while doing little to address a growing humanitarian crisis on its eastern border with Sudan — where thousands fleeing violence in Darfur are out of reach of aid groups.
Chad's Interior Minister played down such accusations Friday, noting that opposition figures who had gone missing have been returning on their own in good health."
