Afrique en ligne (6/13/09)
Chad's former president, General Felix Maloum Ngakoutou, died on Friday of heart attack in the American Hospital of Paris, a statement from the Chad presidency received by PANA in N'Djamena said on Saturday.

Born on 10 September 1932 in Fort-Archambault, new called Sarh, in the South of the country, General Ngakoutou ruled Chad from 1975 to 1978 after a coup staged by young officers.

After resigning in 1979 during the civil war, he went into exile in Nigeria but returned in 2002.

General Ngakoutou, who retired from politics, was made chairman of the Sages, a position he held until his death.

President Idriss Deby Itno has ordered 10 days of national mourning in memory of General Ngakoutou.
