Former Chadian president Hissène Habré will be buried in Senegal on Thursday.
The former president died on Tuesday from Covid complications while serving a life sentence in Senegal for crimes against humanity.
His family in a statement announced that he would be buried in the Senegalese capital, Dakar.
Habré, who ruled Chad from 1982 to 1990, was a brutal dictator under whose reign tens of thousands of people were executed, tortured or jailed.
He was found guilty of crimes committed while he was president in 2016.
Sentenced to life after a landmark trial, Habré spent his final years as a prisoner in Senegal, where he died in a hospital.
