A triple suicide bombing on an island in Lake Chad yesterday 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.
He said the explosions had killed 30 people including the three attackers, and injured more than 80 others.
