Triple suicide attack in Chad leaves dozens dead

Around 30 people have been killed and another 80 injured in three suicide attacks on the island of Koulfoua in Lake Chad in Africa.

It wasn’t immediately clear who carried out the attacks but Chad has been previously targeted by Boko Haram militants from neighbouring Nigeria.

A double suicide attack last month killed 17 people.

Earlier this year thousands of people fleeing the Islamist militant group sought refuge on the island.

The UN says that around 50 000 displaced people have arrived in the region since July.
