Seven Soldiers killed in Sunday Boko Haram attack in Chad


At least seven soldiers are reported to have been killed in an attack by the Islamist group Boko Haram in Chad.

Some 15 others were wounded in the incident in the Lake Chad area, which occurred at night.

The military says 63 jihadists were killed but there has been no independent confirmation.

Last month more than 20 Chadian soldiers were killed by Boko Haram, in one of its deadliest attacks in the country.

Boko Haram is based in Nigeria but also carries out attacks in Chad, Niger and Cameroon. (BBC)
