Swazi Observer - - NEWS -

YAOUND - A young woman blew her­self up on Wed­nes­day in Cameroon's far north, killing four peo­ple and in­jur­ing an­other in an area fre­quently tar­geted by Boko Haram ji­hadists from neigh­bour­ing Nige­ria. The at­tack hap­pened in San­dawad­jiri, just 15km from Nige­ria's north­east­ern bor­der, a se­cu­rity source in Yaounde said, adding that "a young woman blew her­self up" in front of a mosque. The at­tack and the toll were both con­firmed to AFP by a se­cu­rity source in the re­gion. The Far North re­gion, which bor­ders Nige­ria, has seen a resur­gence in at­tacks blamed on Boko Haram af­ter months of rel­a­tive calm.
