More and more security forces say it is probable that Nigerian Islamist extremist group Boko Haram, who claimed responsibility for the kidnapping of a French family on February 19 in northern Cameroon, have moved north towards Chad. 'What I want, its to catch the bastards' Marine captain and head of the Cameroonian Marine presence on Lake Chad Aboubakar said. Lake Chad, a huge area with small islands and canals separating it from Cameroon, Nigeria, Chad and Niger, is a possible hiding place for the kidnappers of the French family and their hostages.
