, N’DJAMENA, Feb 4- Clashes between Chadian troops and Boko Haram fighters during a raid in neighbouring Nigeria have killed 200 Islamists and nine soldiers, Chad’s military said Wednesday.

“We regret nine dead and 21 wounded. On the enemy side: more than 200 deaths…,” a statement said in reference to clashes on Tuesday, adding that the toll could rise since clean-up operations in the Nigerian town of Gamboru were continuing.
