Three soldiers and 123 Boko Haram militants were killed when the Islamist group attacked a Chadian army contingent in northern Cameroon, the Chadian military said Friday.

Twelve soldiers were wounded in the attacks staged by the Islamist group on Thursday and Friday in the Fotokol region, according to a military statement read out on national television.

The Chadian army has sent a convoy of troops and 400 military vehicles into neighbouring Cameroon to deal with the growing threat Boko Haram poses in the region.
