Police in Chad has broken up several demonstrations in the capital, N'Djamena, in protest against last week's military takeover.
They fired tear gas at the demonstrators who burned tyres in several neighbourhoods of the city.
The violence started a few hours after the military banned all protests in the country.
The ban came a week after Chad's military seized power following the killing of President Idriss Déby as he visited troops fighting an insurrection by rebels based in Libya.
The ruling military council is headed by the dead president's son, Mahamat Idriss Déby Kaka, who said he would oversee an eighteen-month transition period until elections would be held.
