30 dead, 50 hurt in Chad suicide bombings

11 October 2015, Nirapad News: Suicide bombers have attacked a fish market and refugee camp in the town of Baga Sola in western Chad, killing more than 30 people, officials say.

More than 50 people are being treated at the hospital in the town, which is on the shores of Lake Chad, reports BBC.

The camp on the town’s outskirts is home to tens of thousands of Nigerians who have fled Boko Haram attacks.

Chad is host to a new regional force set up to tackle the Nigeria-based militant Islamists.

Benin, Cameroon, Chad, Niger and Nigeria agreed to establish the 8,700-strong force, but it has yet to start operations in earnest because of reported funding difficulties.

At least 37 people died in the Baga Sola explosions on Saturday afternoon.

This figure may include the suicide attackers, which some reports put at five.
