Chad’s opposition accuses Mrs Le Pen of fascism

French presidential candidate Marine Le Pen, the leader of the far-right Front National party, is to make a rare visit to Africa, a party official said.

She is travelling to Chad to meet French soldiers based there as part of the Barkhane anti-terrorism force.

Chadian opposition parties say she should be banned from visiting describing her as a champion of “fascist” policies.

It is the first time Ms Le Pen is in Africa in an official capacity.
