Two female suicide bombers detonated their explosives in a town in north Cameroon, killing at least five people and injuring 12 others. Col. Jacob Kodji, who leads Cameroon troops fighting against Nigeria’s Boko Haram extremist group, said two teenagers targeted a family and local shop in the town of Dabanga near Cameroon’s northern border with Nigeria.
He said the suicide bombers were Nigerians who came to Cameroon as refugees. Cameroon has expelled thousands of refugees.No group claimed responsibility for the attacks, though they are in line with others launched by Boko Haram which has expanded attacks into Cameroon, Chad and Niger – all countries contributing troops to a regional force intended to wipe out the extremists.
