Boko Haram steps up Cameroon raids

Report
IRIN

YAOUNDE, 24 July 2014 (IRIN) - Nigerian radical Islamist group Boko Haram's free-wheeling ruthlessness is increasingly troubling the remote Far North Region of Cameroon, which has seen several attacks in recent months, with foreigners also abducted for ransom.

This month, heavily armed men suspected to be Boko Haram fighters attacked Bonderi village 5km from the border with Nigeria and stole a military vehicle, four motorbikes and weapons from the gendarmerie base there, government officials told IRIN.

Cameroon villagers live in terror of Nigeria's Boko Haram

07/22/2014 03:01 GMT

by Reinnier KAZE

YAOUNDE, July 22, 2014 (AFP) - In the villages that line the border with Nigeria, even those charged with protecting Cameroonians from Boko Haram fighters fear the fall of darkness.

"When night falls, we tremble. We don't sleep," said a Cameroonian policeman from a far-northern border town, on condition of anonymity.

The Nigeria-born Islamist group has stepped up raids into northern Cameroon in recent days, murdering and stealing with impunity despite military efforts to clamp down on their bloody insurgency.
