Soldiers cheered on their departure to protect Chad from Boko Haram

Thousands of people have marched in the Chadian capital N’Djamena in support of the government’s decision to send troops and armored vehicles against Boko Haram to challenge the Islamist advance in Nigeria and Cameroon.

People took part in the rally to show their support for the government’s decision to take part in a regional force to protect economy and security. Last Wednesday, Chad said it would support Cameroon, whose president, Paul Biya, appealed for an international response to the radical Islamist threat.

At the beginning of this year, Boko Haram fighters launched a full-scale assault on the border town of Baga near Lake Chad, which has a border crossing with Chad, Nigeria, Niger, and Cameroon.
