Suicide bomber in a burqa hits Chadian capital

A suicide bomber dressed in a woman’s burqa has killed 15 people at a market in Chad’s capital N’Djamena. No group immediately claimed responsibility, but Boko Haram militants are suspected of carrying out the blast.

Wearing the head-to-toe garment that authorities banned last month, the man blew himself up at the entrance to a market in N’Djamena at about 8:45 a.m. local time (0745 UTC) Saturday, a police officer said.

Around 80 people were seriously injured in the explosion and aid workers were seen treating them at the scene.
