Two Boko Haram suicide bombers blew themselves up in Cameroon on Friday morning, killing themselves and a civilian.

The suicide attacks took place in the town of Kerawa in the country’s far north along the border with Nigeria where Abubakar Shekau’s men are based and from where they consistently launch regional attacks against civilians and armed forces.

“Suicide bombing this morning in kerawa. Interim report 03 Dead (02 suicide bombers and a civilian),” reported Cameroonian newspaper, L’Oeil du Sahel.

The latest attacks occurred only 48 hours after clashes between people of Manigueidé village in the district of Afadé, also in Cameroon’s far north, and Boko Haram fighters, left two villagers dead. One terrorist was captured.

Boko Haram attacks in Cameroon and Nigeria have increased in recent months. In Cameroon, the terrorists have massacred more than two thousand civilians and killed hundreds of soldiers and policemen.

Hundreds of thousands of people have been displaced and many have been kidnapped and never seen again.

President Paul Biya of Cameroon who has never set foot in the war zone has vowed many times that the terrorists would be crushed, but as days turned into weeks, and weeks into months and years, it became apparent that the terrorists were far from being crushed.
