Boko Haram Suicide Bombing In Cameroon Leaves 10 Dead – An attack by a Boko Haram suicide bomber in the Cameroonian town of Djakana has left 10 people dead.
“Seven people were killed immediately, including the bomber. Four others later succumbed to their wounds”, a security source said of the incident, which occurred near the Nigerian border. “Others who were wounded are in hospital. We fear the number of victims could rise.”
The victims were said to be civilians who had joined vigilante groups to help fight off the menace. “They were gathered in a video room when the attacker entered and triggered his explosives,” the security source added.
Boko Haram, which originally began carrying out attacks in Nigeria, has over the years spread to neighbouring countries like Niger, Chad and Cameroon, leaving over 20,000 people dead in its wake.
