Islamist fighters from Nigeria’s Boko Haram group have killed at least 10 civilians in a cross-border raid on a village in northern Cameroon, security sources told AFP on Friday.
A source within the administration said there had been “a dozen deaths” in the raid.
The Nigerian-based Islamists also attacked a Cameroon army position in Amchide, on the border with Nigeria. “They burned houses in Amchide, but without losses on our side. The attack was repulsed. We don’t know yet about casualties on the enemy side,” the security source said.
Cameroon is taking part in a four-country offensive against Boko Haram, together with Chad, Niger and Nigeria.
