Warring Chad factions OK a cease-fire, French say

The two main warring factors in N'Djamena, the embattled Chad capital, have agreed to cease-fire, French radio reported Sunday. Foreign Ministry officials said they were aware of the report but could not confirm it.

The radio said the cease-fire was agreed to after several French-arranged telephone calls between President Goukouni Oueddie and Defense Minister Hissene Habre, leaders of the feuding forces. It was the fourth cease-fire agreement concluded in N'Djamena since March 22, when the new outbreak of fighting in the north central African nation began. The earlier truces were never really respected.
