At least six people were killed in Chad after a female suicide bomber blew herself up in western Chad early Wednesday, a senior army officer said, in an attack attributed to Nigeria’s Boko Haram.
The incident was confirmed by an indigene who claimed anonymous, he said, “Six people died, including a soldier,” in the attack in Kaiga-Kindjiria district.
A local NGO cofirmed the number of people who were killed and injured.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
