N’DJAMENA: Twenty-three people were killed and more than 100 wounded in twin suicide bombings targeting police in the Chadian capital Monday, with the government blaming Boko Haram militants for the bloodshed. They were the first such attacks in the capital of the central African nation, which has been on the frontline of the regional fight against the Nigerian Islamist group. “Boko Haram chose the wrong target. These lawless and faithless terrorists will be flushed out and neutralized wherever they are,” the government said in a statement. It said 23 people were killed and another 101 wounded in the simultaneous bombings outside the police headquarters and police academy in N’Djamena. Four “terrorists” were also killed, it said without giving details.
