Yaounde — Two female suicide bombers attacked a mosque in a town near Cameroon's border with Nigeria during morning prayers Wednesday, killing at least 10 people and wounding about a dozen others, the governor of the region said.
The attack in the town of Kolofata is believed to have been carried out by Boko Haram members who crossed the border into Cameroon a few days ago, said Midjiyawa Bakari. The town of Kolofata in Cameroon's far north near the border has been repeatedly attacked by Boko Haram.
