Chad Hits Islamist Bases in Nigeria After Attacks on Capital

Updated on

Chadian helicopters struck at least six bases in neighboring Nigeria used by the Islamist militant group Boko Haram in response to twin bombings in the capital, N’Djamena, earlier this week, the military said.

The air strikes caused “human and material damage,” the Chadian army general staff said Thursday in a statement read on national radio, without giving further details. There was no independent confirmation of the raids.
