Several Civilians Killed By Female Suicide Bomber In Western Chad


Nine civilians died in western Chad after a female suicide bomber detonated her explosives in an area targeted in the past by terrorist group Boko Haram, the army and officials said on Monday.

The attack took place overnight Sunday in the village of Kaiga Kindjiria.

"A suicide bomber blew herself up yesterday in Kaiga Kindjiria, killing nine people, two women and seven men," an army source said.

The toll was confirmed by Chadian army spokesman Colonel Azem Bermandoa.

"It is Boko Haram, There is no doubt," the spokesman said.

Kaiga-Kindjiria, a village of about 7,000 people, is located near the vast Lake Chad region where militants hide out among islets and marshlands to launch attacks on Cameroon, Chad, Nigeria and Niger.

Boko Haram began in Nigeria but its attacks have spread to neighbouring countries. The group has also split and a faction affiliated with the ISIS group, ISWAP, is particularly active around Lake Chad.
