Rebels in Chad seeking to overthrow the government fought their way into the capital city, N'Djamena, Saturday morning after a five-day march from Chad's eastern border, across from Darfur.

The rebels are seeking the overthrow of President Idriss Deby, who they say reneged on a cease-fire agreement and is mismanaging the country's oil wealth.
