Suicide bombers attack mosque in Cameroon

It was not immediately clear if the explosions caused other fatalities.

 

Two female suicide bombers suspected of belonging to the Boko Haram militant group blew themselves on Monday near a mosque in Cameroon's Far North province, military officials said on Monday.

Boko Haram has led a six-year campaign for an Islamist state in northeastern Nigeria. Neighbouring countries including Cameroon joined forces against the group last year, driving its offensive beyond Nigeria and displacing thousands of people.
