Cameroon, July 13: At least 14 persons are killed in twin suicide bombings in Cameroon on Thursday, said reports. However, the details on the number of people injured is awaited.
Earlier in June, two children carrying explosives blew themselves up near a camp in northern Cameroon housing civilians displaced by Nigeria’s Boko Haram militants. The incident claimed nine lives and injured 30.
Cameroon has suffered a great deal in recent past due to Nigeria’s Boko Haram insurgents. Nigerian refugees have flooded across the border and entered Cameroon due to Boko Haram menace in Nigeria.
Though Boko Haram was born in Nigeria, the Islamic State-affiliated group has carried out frequent attacks in Cameroon.
