Triple suicide attack 'kills 27 on Lake Chad island'

The Lake Chad region also borders Niger, Nigeria and Cameroon and and is frequently targeted by Boko Haram IslamistsN’Djamena (AFP) – A triple suicide bombing on an island in Lake Chad on Saturday killed at least 27 people and left more than 80 wounded, a Chadian security source said, in another apparent strike by Boko Haram Islamists despite a regional offensive to stop the insurgency. “Three suicide bombers blew themselves up in three different places at the weekly market on Loulou Fou, an island in Lake Chad,” the source in the capital N’Djamena told AFP, speaking on condition of anonymity. N’Djamena on November 9 declared a state of emergency in the flashpoint Lake Chad region, which also straddles Nigeria, Cameroon and Niger and is frequently targeted by Nigeria’s Boko Haram fighters who this year declared allegiance to the Islamic State group.
