Victims to participate in trial of ex-Chad ruler
Clement Abaifouta, president of the association of victims of former Chadian dictator Hissene Habre, tells the story of his arrest and four years in prison, at a press conference in Dakar, Senegal, Wednesday, July 17, 2013. Abaifouta, arrested in 1985, said he was forced to dig graves for hundreds of prisoners, while his health deteriorated to the point where he was no longer able to walk. A lawyer said more than 1,000 victims of Habre have formally asked to participate in his trial on charges of war crimes, crimes against humanity and torture. (AP Photo/Rebecca Blackwell)
