Boko Haram kills dozens in Cameroon

Boko Haram fighters kill almost 70 civilians and six soldiers in an onslaught on the Cameroonian border town of Fotokol on Wednesday, a Cameroonian security source tells AFP.

“There are many (dead) civilians, nearly 70. The toll for the soldiers stands at six,” says the source in Fotokol, adding that there were also Boko Haram bodies “everywhere”.

The attack comes a day after Chad sent troops across the border to flush the jihadists out of the Nigerian town of Gamboru, which lies some 500 meters from Fotokol on the other side of a bridge.
