N'DJAMENA (Reuters) - Chadian troops killed one of al Qaeda's most feared commanders in Africa, Abdelhamid Abou Zeid, during fighting with Islamist rebels in northern Mali, President Idriss Deby said on Friday.
"It was Chadian forces who killed two jihadi leaders, including Abou Zeid," Deby told opposition politicians in the presence of journalists after a funeral ceremony for Chadian soldiers killed in the fighting.
