Background: Chad , part of France's African holdings until 1960 , endured three decades of civil warfare as well as invasions by Libya before a semblance of peace was finally restored in 1990. The government eventually drafted a democratic constitution , and held flawed presidential elections in 1996 and 2001. In 1998 , a rebellion broke out in northern Chad , which has sporadically flared up despite several peace agreements between the government and the rebels. In 2005 , new rebel groups emerged in western Sudan and made probing attacks into eastern Chad , despite signing peace agreements in December 2006 and October 2007. Power remains in the hands of an ethnic minority. In June 2005 , President Idriss DEBY held a referendum successfully removing constitutional term limits and won another controversial election in 2006. Sporadic rebel campaigns continued throughout 2006 and 2007 , and the capital experienced a significant rebel threat in early 2008.
