Chaos erupted as security forces ushered former Chadian dictator Hissene Habre into and then out of the Senegal courtroom where he is being tried on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity.

His lawyers said officials forcibly led him to the court to participate in the trial, which he has denounced as politically motivated.

As he entered wearing a white robe, his supporters started yelling, prompting security officers to surround him and carry him out.
