MAROUA (CAMEROON), 17 September 2014 (IRIN) - Nigerians fleeing Boko Haram violence at home and seeking refuge in Cameroon border towns are still not safe.

KANO, September 11, 2014 (AFP) - Cameroon's claims this week that two Tuareg fighters were among the dead when troops bombarded Boko Haram positions have sparked fresh interest in the group's links to the wider jihadi network.

Communication minister Issa Tchiroma Bakary did not elaborate on the nationality of the foreigners, who were among the more than 100 killed during an attempted cross-border raid at the weekend.
