Chad bombs Boko Haram bases in Nigeria

By on June 18, 2015

Chad’s military has carried out a series of air strikes against Boko Haram bases in Nigeria in retaliation for twin suicide bombings this week in the Chadian capital N’Djamena that killed at least 34 people, it said in a statement late on Wednesday.

Chad responded to that attack with air strikes on suspected Boko Haram positions within Nigeria.

The group suffered heavy casualties and six of its bases were destroyed, the military said.
Chad is to host a new regional force being set up to tackle Boko Haram.
Chad has been a driving force behind a regional military campaign that has inflicted a series of defeats on Boko Haram since January.
On Tuesday, Chad banned people from wearing the full-face Islamic veil, saying militants used it as a “camouflage” to carry out Monday’s attacks.
