At least 35 killed in 5 suicide bomb blasts in northern Cameroon

YAOUNDE — At least 35 people were killed and 60 injured in five suicide bomb attacks in Cameroon’s Far North Region on Monday.

One army source told Xinhua five women who pretended to be vegetable vendors detonated the bombs hidden in their vegetable baskets at around 11:30 a.m. (10:30 GMT) on Monday in Bodo, a town in Far North Region, killing at least 35 people, including themselves, and injuring 60.

The attacks are suspected to have been the handiwork of Nigerian Islamic sect Boko Haram which has started attacks in Cameroon since 2013 — leaving over 1,000 people killed. PNA/Xinhua/
