2 Explosions Hit Chad’s Capital, Kill 11, Witnesses Say – ABC News
Two blasts rocked Chad’s capital city, killing at least 11 people weeks after suicide bombings killed dozens, residents and an official said Monday.
The first explosion was heard early Monday in the Dinguessou neighborhood of N’Djamena, and the second came minutes later, said resident Souleymane Brahim.
“There were two explosions. The first came around 5:10 a.m. in the morning. It was followed by gunfire. The second came around 5:16 a.m.,” he said.
The blasts come weeks after a double suicide bombing in the capital that killed at least 38 people and wounded more than 100 others. The June 15 attack was the first of its kind in N’Djamena and came after threats from Nigeria’s Islamic extremist group Boko Haram.
