At least a dozen civilians and a Chadian soldier were killed in two suicide attacks by suspected Boko Haram militants in the northern Cameroon town of Fotokol late on Sunday, a senior Cameroonian military officer said.

"The attacks targeted a Cameroon special forces camp in the town. T

he first explosion took place at a bar close to the camp and a second followed some minutes later behind the camp," the officer said, requesting anonymity.

Islamist group Boko Haram, which launched an insurgency six years ago to carve out an emirate in northeast Nigeria, has also stepped up attacks in neighbouring Chad, Cameroon and Niger in recent months.
