Boko Haram attacks military post across border in Cameroon

11 July 2014, 19:20

Yaounde - Terrorist group Boko Haram attacked a military post in northern Cameroon, state broadcaster CRTV reported Friday. Dozens of heavily armed militants opened machine gunfire at soldiers in the town of Bonderi, in Cameroon's Far North region, about 5 kilometres from the border with Nigeria.

In a 30-minute exchange of gunfire, a Cameroonian soldier was wounded.

Pools of blood indicated that some of the insurgents had been hit by bullets as well, but no bodies were left behind when they fled back into Nigeria, according to the report. The attack is the second in the region this week.

On Tuesday, Boko Haram attacked and looted a gendarmerie post in the town of Zina, also in Far North region, stealing vehicles, guns and ammunition.

President Paul Biya in May declared war on Boko Haram after the Islamists started to frequently infiltrate into Cameroon.
