At least 13 people killed in suicide attacks in Cameroon

Two suicide bomb attacks killed at least 13 people


Two suicide bomb attacks killed at least 13 people and injured 32 others in northern Cameroon, the president’s office said, in what appeared to be the deepest incursion by Boko Haram takfiri terrorists from neighboring Nigeria. 
The first explosion hit a market and the second a densely populated neighborhood, both in the capital of Cameroon’s Far North region, Maroua, a military source said. 
No one claimed responsibility, but Boko Haram has stepped up attacks on the countries bordering its northeast Nigerian stronghold – Chad, Niger as well as Cameroon. 
All three have contributed troops to a regional offensive against the terrorist group who has allied themselves to the so-called Islamic State terrorist group and poses one of the biggest security threats in the combustible region.
