180 terrorists killed in Cameroon

The Boko Haram members were reportedly killed during a battle in Amchide, a town bordering Nigeria

According to military sources, about 180 members of Boko Haram have been killed in Northern Cameroon.

The terrorists were killed during a battle in Amchide, a town bordering Nigeria, Chinese news agency, Xinhua reports.

The raid on the town was reportedly conducted by about 400 insurgents but they were successfully pushed back by the Cameroonian troops.

Cameroon has suffered attacks from the group largely due to its expansive border with Nigeria. This has led the Cameroonian government to consider making terrorism a crime punishable by death.
