Two female suicide bombers in Cameroon killed 15 people

Vastavam web:  At least 15 people are dead after two female suicide bombers carried out the latest attack in Cameroon’s far north, the government said today, and another 42 people are wounded.The attackers entered the town of Waza late yesterday and one detonated explosives near a group of youths, Governor Midjiyawa Bakary said.The Islamic extremists have killed more than 20,000 people in their eight-year existence and abducted thousands of others.

Boko Haram increasingly has used girls and young women to carry out attacks on marketplaces, checkpoints and other targets. Some young women who escaped the extremist group have said girls are drugged and forced to carry out suicide missions.The suicide attacks, roadside bombings and raids on villages also have been “complicating humanitarian operations and subjecting civilians to persistent danger,” the UN humanitarian agency said earlier this week.In addition, the UN’s World Food Program has cut food assistance to almost 200,000 Nigerian refugees and displaced people by 25 per cent since January because of lack of funding.
