Fighting Boko Haram: Sucide Bomber On Motorbike strikes Mora-Far North Region Killing 3 Cameroonians

At least three killed and 24 others injured in Mora town, with authorities suspecting involvement of Boko Haram.

A suicide bomber on a motorbike killed three people and wounded 24 at a market in north Cameroon, where armed group Boko Haram has been waging an armed rebellion since 2009, authorities said.

A senior military official told Reuters news agency that the bomber was also killed in the attack in Mora, in Cameroon's Far North province.

 

He said that it was possible one of the three victims was also on the bike. Another security source said authorities were convinced this was the work of Boko Haram, which has pledged allegiance to ISIL, wants to create an Islamic state in the region spanning four countries. 

 A regional offensive against Boko Haram led by Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon and Niger - the four countries most affected by the armed group - has chased it out of towns in the Lake Chad region.
