3 dead in suicide attack in Cameroon border town

Three people were killed and four others wounded on Wednesday in a suicide attack in Cameroon’s restive Far North, a local official said.


“The blast killed three people — a police officer and two civilians,” he said.

The bomber also died in the explosion which left another four people injured.The toll was confirmed to AFP by a source close to the security services.

The local official said the bomber crossed into Cameroon through Kerawa, a town which lies on the border with Nigeria.

Kolofata, which lies 10 kilometres (six miles) from the border with Nigeria, is located in a region of the same name which has been regularly targeted by Boko Haram extremists.

In September 2015, between 20 and 40 people lost their lives in a double bombing in Kerawa — one of the deadliest attacks on Cameroonian territory.
