At least four people have been reported killed in a suicide bombing at a mosque in northern Cameroon on Monday, January 18, a security source said.
“The toll of this attack is four dead and two injured,” the source, who was at the scene of the attack, told AFP.
It was learnt that the suicide bomber – a teenage boy – attacked the mosque around 6:00 am (0500 GMT) just as morning prayers were ending.
“The suicide bomber, a young boy, arrived in the village by foot,” the source said.
The source further added that a witness had noticed his behaviour seemed suspicious and had tried to intercept him.
“The bomber ran towards the mosque, where he set off the explosives he was carrying with him,” the source stated.
As at press time, no group has claimed responsibility for the attack but it is believed that Boko Haram is responsible.
