Chadian troops have recaptured the town of Kouba Olanga, which was taken by Libyan troops in a renewal of fighting in the central African state, Chadian officials said. A Foreign Ministry statement said that Libyan troops are expected to launch a new offensive against the town, midway between the capital of N'Djamena and the rebel stronghold of Faya Largeau, in the next few days. The Libyan move against Kouba Olanga broke a 30-month truce in the civil war. Libya supports the rebels of former President Goukouni Oueddei, who is trying to oust current President Hissen Habre.
