ABIDJAN, Oct 10 (Reuters) - Thirty-eight people, including five attackers, were killed and another 51 were wounded on Saturday in a series of suicide bombings in a town in Chad suspected to be the work of Nigeria's Boko Haram Islamist militant group, a local government official said.

Witnesses in Baga Sola, a border town on Lake Chad, reported three explosions in the town's market and a refugee camp. A hospital source confirmed the death toll given by local sub-prefect Dimoya Souapebe.
