At least 27 people were killed and some 80 injured in a triple suicide bombing attack on an island in Lake Chad, according to reports.
Security sources told the Reuters news agency that the attacks on Saturday on the island of Koulfoua on the Chadian side of Lake Chad coincided with market day.
The AFP news agency also reported the attack, citing security sources.
Earlier this year, thousands of people fleeing the armed group Boko Haram sought refuge on the island, although it was not immediately clear if they were still based there.
