Boko Haram fighters sentenced to death
Chad has sentenced 10 members of the Islamist militant group Boko Haram to death on terror charges, after a three-day trial in the capital N’Djamena.
The 10 were convicted over their roles in twin attacks on the capital in June, which killed at least 38.
The attacks were the first by the Nigerian-based group in Chad, which hosts the headquarters of a regional force set up to fight the militants.
In July, Chad reintroduced the death penalty for acts of terror.
Opposition and civil liberties groups have criticised the new anti-terror legislation, saying it could be used to curb civil rights.
