Thousands flee Boko Haram attacks in Nigeria


YAOUNDE: Sustained Boko Haram attacks in Nigeria’s far northeast have forced thousands of people from their homes, swamping towns in the north of neighboring Cameroon, authorities said on Sunday. “We’ve been flooded here in Mora by Cameroonians and Nigerians fleeing Boko Haram,” a police officer in the northern town told Agence France-Presse on condition of anonymity. “The day before yesterday [Friday], there were already more than 10,000 people in Mora. Not a day goes by without more people coming.”
