At least 11 people were killed in Cameroon after two bomb attacks
executed by Boko Haram.
Details of the bombs are still sketchy, as news sources are giving
conflicting reports. Some say the attack was carried out by two female
suicide bombers, while other say the source of the explosions were two
bombs planted at a bar.
For instance, First Post reports:
At least 11 people were killed when two female suicide bombers blew
themselves up near an army camp in troubled northern Cameroon in an
attack blamed on Boko Haram Islamists.
President Paul Biya condemned the “cowardly and odious” attack,
which took place on Sunday, and said he had given “strict instructions
to the defence and security forces to secure our country.”
On the other hand, CBS News reports:
Two bombs planted by suspected Boko Haram fighters went off at a bar
in a northern town in Cameroon, killing at least 14 people, a military
spokesman said Monday.
Col. Didier Badjeck said three Chadian soldiers were among those
killed Sunday in Fotokol, a town on the border with Nigeria’s Borno
state. He said no Cameroonian soldiers were hurt.
