Suspected Nigerian Boko Haram militants have carried out an attack on Chad overnight, the first such assault on Chadian soil.

Officials said the fighters crossed Lake Chad by motorboat and attacked a village on the shores of the lake.

Chad recently joined Nigeria, Niger, and Cameroon in a military coalition against Boko Haram.

The number of casualties was unknown but Chad officials say a local chief was killed during the attack.
