14 killed, 30 injured in Cameroon bomb attack

 

 

Two bombers blew themselves up in northeastern Cameroon, killing 14 people and injuring 30 in an attack likely staged by Boko Haram terrorists, security sources said.  

The bombings, which took place in Waza near the Nigerian border, targeted a busy area in the market town, the sources said.

The bombers struck an area with "restaurants, telephone cabins and kiosks," a local official said.  "The town has been sealed off

Nobody can enter and nobody can leave," the source said, adding that some of the wounded were in "quite serious" conditions.

Though Boko Haram was born in Nigeria, the Daesh-affiliated group has carried out frequent attacks in Cameroon, Chad, and Niger, prompting the formation of a regional force to fight back.
