Suicide blast kills 15
YAOUNDE: At least 15 people are dead after the latest suicide attack in Cameroon’s far north, the government said yesterday, while another 42 people were wounded.
Two attackers entered the town of Waza late on Wednesday and one detonated explosives near a group of youths, Governor Midjiyawa Bakary said.
Nigeria-based Boko Haram extremists have been crossing borders to stage attacks in neighbouring countries, including Cameroon, that contribute to a military force that seeks to eliminate the insurgency. The Islamic extremists have killed more than 20 000 people in eight years and abducted thousands.
