GAO - A suicide bomber killed at least three Chadian soldiers on Friday morning at a market in the northern Mali town of Kidal, three witnesses said.

"He blew himself up next to a group of Chadian soldiers. Three were killed in the blast and several others were wounded," resident Ag Waerzagane Assikadaye told Reuters by telephone.

Chadian and French soldiers have been stationed in the desert town since late January to fight Islamist rebels hiding in the region's mountainous borderlands.
