N'Djamena (AFP) - Three people were killed and dozens wounded in two suicide bombings in the Lake Chad area on Sunday, a region frequently targeted by Nigeria's Boko Haram Islamists, a security official said.

In the first attack in Guie, a bomber on a motorcycle blew himself up, killing one person and injuring 32, while the second attack in the village of Miterine left two dead and 24 wounded, the official said.
