Boko Haram extremists have killed at least 92 Chadian soldiers in what the president calls the deadliest attack on the nation’s forces

N'DJAMENA, Chad -- Boko Haram extremists have killed at least 92 Chadian soldiers in the deadliest attack on the nation’s forces, Chad’s president said.

President Idriss Deby gave the toll on state television late Tuesday after visiting the site.

“Never in our history have we lost so many men at one time,” he said.

The Islamic extremist group also killed 50 Nigerian soldiers on Monday in a separate attack in Yobe state in Nigeria's north.
