Three suspected members of the Boko Haram sect died on Tuesday when explosives they were transporting went off in Niger’s far east region of Diffa.

A source told journalists that the incident occurred as the insurgents were about to enter Bosso town, where they planned to carry out an attack.

On Sunday, 10 people, among them one soldier, five civilians and four suicide bombers, were killed in two separate suicide attacks by Boko Haram in Diffa.

The two bombs targeted a military camp and a Mosque in Diffa, a few days after two Nigerien soldiers were killed in an ambush by the militants in the same region.

In the last seven months, Niger, like other countries within the Lake Chad basin, has come under Boko Haram attacks.

Cameroun, Chad and Niger have troops in the regional task force tackling insurgency.
