DOUALA: A sui­cide bomber has killed at least seven peo­ple in a small town in north­ern Cameroon near the Nige­ria bor­der, a lo­cal of­fi­cial and a mil­i­tary source said yes­ter­day.

The at­tack oc­curred on Satur­day near Am­chide in Cameroon’s Far North re­gion, which has be­come a tar­get for Boko Haram sui­cide bombers, many of whom are young women forced to en­ter pop­u­lated ar­eas with ex­plo­sives strapped to their bod­ies.

No group claimed re­spon­si­bil­ity for the at­tack and the iden­tity of the bombers re­mains un­known.
