At least 27 people have died in two attacks in the Chadian capital N’Djamena. Four suspected Boko Haram Islamist fighters are said to be among those killed.

The government is blaming the Nigerian militant group for the attacks, one of which was carried out by a suicide bomber at the police headquarters, Chad’s Interior Minister told Reuters news agency.

Dozens of Chadian soldiers have died fighting al-Qaeda affiliates in northern Mali and Boko Haram in northern Nigeria, however Monday’s attacks in the country are described as the first of their kind.
