Entering the village on lorries and motorbikes in the evening, the attackers reportedly fire bombed huts, burning civilians and livestock to death.
According to survivor Alamin Bakura, who hid in a tree during the attack and lost several family members, he heard the many screams of children as people burned.
While villagers say 50 people perished in the attack, a Reuters reporter counted at least 65 bodies in the morgue.
A day later, another three people were killed and dozens were wounded, after two suicide bombers exploded in two locations near Chad’s Lake Chad.
