Topic: Chad says Boko Haram responsible for bombs that killed 27


By Moumine Ngarmbassa N'DJAMENA (Reuters) - At least 27 people, including four suspected Boko Haram Islamist fighters, were killed and 100 others were injured on Monday in two attacks in Chad's capital, N'Djamena, which the government blamed on the Nigerian militant group. 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 neighboring Nigeria. "Boko Haram is making a mistake by targeting Chad," Communications Minister Hassan Sylla Bakari said on state television.
