15054634794_86f3806f16_zSuicide bombers targeting a town in northern Cameroon killed 32 people and wounded 66 on Monday. It is one of the worst attacks yet in the Central African nation as it struggles to contain violence.

The suicide bombings in northern Cameroon were the deadliest in more than two years, with at least 32 people killed and 66 others wounded.

The attack was coordinated; with reports saying that two bombers blew themselves up at the market in Bordo village. A third bomber blew up at the entrance of the village. Shoppers and stall owners were killed in the blasts.

Under pressure from the military in its stronghold of north-eastern Nigeria, it appears that militant Islamist group Boko Haram is now stepping up cross-border attacks, targeting Cameroon, Niger and Chad.

Northern Cameroon is worst affected – last week, four worshippers were killed in a suicide attack at a mosque in a remote village, and a few days earlier 12 were killed in a similar attack at another mosque.
