About 27 people, including four suspected Boko Haram members, have been killed and 100 others injured in two attacks in Chad’s capital, N’Djamena.

The attacks, which included at least one suicide bomb, are the first of their kind in Chad, an oil-producing nation and a major western ally which has spearheaded offensives on al Qaeda-linked groups in Mali and on Boko Haram in neighbouring Nigeria.

Chad’s Communications Minister, Mr. Hassan Bakari, in a state television broadcast, said that Boko Haram is making a mistake by targeting Chad and will be chased out and neutralised wherever they are.

Mr. Bakari did not give further details but Interior Minister, Abderahim Bireme Hamid, said earlier that there had been at least one suicide attack at police headquarters.

Chad has lost dozens of soldiers fighting in northern Mali and in northern Nigeria.

The first known attack by Boko Haram on Chadian soil took place in February on the shores of Lake Chad and has been followed by a handful of other isolated incidents.
