Chad Executes 10 Boko Haram Suspects By Firing Squad
Chad executed 10 alleged members of Nigeria-based Islamist group, Boko Haram, by firing squad today, Saturday, August 29 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. The hearings opened Wednesday.

The 10 suspects were condemned to death on Friday in the country’s first trial of presumed members of the Islamist group. The accused include Nigerian national Mahamat Mustapha, also known as Bana Fanaye, who according to Chadian authorities masterminded the June 15 suicide attacks that struck a school and a police building in N’Djamena, killing 38 people and injuring 101.
