Suicide bomber kills 10 in Cameroon

By on December 11, 2015

A suicide bomber killed 10 people in Cameroon’s Far North region, military and political sources said.

At least two bombers sought to participate in the attack on Kolofata near the town’s stadium, although only one of the devices detonated, the sources said. Authorities found a device for the second would-be bomber who fled the scene.

This attack seems to have been carried out by Boko Haram militants.

Islamist Boko Haram has taken some of its intensifying attacks across the borders of neighbouring countries.

Suicide bombings have become regular occurrences in the Far North region.

Cameroon has contributed troops to an 8,700-strong regional task force dedicated to fighting Boko Haram, although joint operations have yet to begin.

Last week Cameroon’s army said it had killed 100 members of the group and freed 900 hostages, although analysts and security sources suggested that scale might be exaggerated.
