N'Djamena (AFP) - Chad executed 10 alleged members of Nigeria-based Islamist group, Boko Haram, by firing squad Saturday, a day after they were found guilty of a double suicide killing that left 38 people dead in the capital N'Djamena.

"They were executed this morning on a shooting ground north of N'Djamena," a judicial source told AFP. The report was confirmed by a security source who asked not to be identified.
