No fewer than 10 people have been confirmed dead and 100 wounded today (Thursday, September 3) when a bomb went off near an army camp in northern Cameroon, where soldiers are battling Boko Haram fighters.
Army and police sources said another blast hit a market. Both blasts were suspected to have been carried out by Boko Haram members.
The attacks targeted Kerawa, a town in the Far North region that was the scene of clashes between Boko Haram militants and government soldiers in February.
The first bomb exploded in the morning in the market in Kerawa and the other soon after near a camp housing infantry soldiers stationed in the north to fight the insurgency group.
A local government official said he had been told that the attacks were carried out by female bombers.
