Ousmane Balde, a retired military officer who sits with friends every morning on a bench not far from the villa where Habre lived with his Chadian family, said he admired Habre's ability to "become Senegalese."
"I'm very sad about the way in which he was taken," Balde said. "Many African presidents have committed errors, committed crimes. But he's Senegalese, and he should be treated without brutality. All of Dakar is grieving over this."
