Suicide bombers kill 32 in Cameroon market


YAOUNDÉ: Thirty-two people were killed on Monday when at least three suicide bombers blew themselves up at a market in northern Cameroon, a region often targeted by Nigeria’s Boko Haram, officials said. Police said the assailants hit a local market in Bodo village near the frontier with Nigeria in one of the deadliest attacks in the Far North region since 2013. “The initial toll reported 32 dead and 86 wounded,” said regional governor Midjiyawa Bakari. An earlier report mentioned three suicide bombers but a local source said there were four young girl bombers. Nearly 1,200 people have been killed since 2013 when Boko Haram began attacking Cameroon’s Far North, an area that borders the Islamist group’s stronghold in northeastern Nigeria.
