Chad's culture minister says that ancient cave paintings at a world heritage site have been defaced. Mahamat Saleh Haroun told the AFP news agency that unknown vandals had scrawled over the 4000-year-old depictions of animals and people that decorate the sandstone caves of the Ennedi Plateau in the north-east of the country. When Mr Haroun became culture minister in February, he said one of his aims was to promote the country's tourist sites. The natural and cultural landscape of the Ennedi Massif was declared a world heritage site last year by UN cultural agency Unesco.
