The trial of Chad's former ruler Hissene Habre on war crimes charges has been adjourned until September 7 after the presiding judge appointed three new lawyers on Tuesday for the defence.

Habre was brought to court by force for the second day of the hearing but his lawyers did not show, prompting the special court to appoint a legal team who will represent him. The new lawyers were given 45 days to prepare.
