WASHINGTON, April 21 (Reuters) - The U.S. government sees the violence in Chad following the death of its president, Idriss Deby, as gravely disturbing and would be concerned by anything that would stand in the way of a democratic transition of power there, the U.S. State Department said on Wednesday.

State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters at a daily briefing that Washington was closely watching the political situation in Chad. (Reporting By Matt Spetalnick Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
