Female suicide bomber kills six in Chad


A female suicide bomber killed six people after blowing herself up in western Chad early Wednesday, a senior army officer said, in an attack attributed to Nigeria’s Boko Haram jihadists.



“Six people died, including a soldier,” in the attack in Kaiga-Kindjiria district, said the source, speaking on condition of anonymity.

A number of people were also injured, the officer said, without giving figures.
A provincial security official said a woman wearing an explosives-laden belt “blew herself up near the home of a traditional chief”.

Four guards, as well as a soldier, were among the dead, and five people were wounded, the official said.



The death toll of six was confirmed by Chadian army spokesman Colonel Azem Bermandoa, and by a local NGO.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
