Boko Haram Fires Rocket To Northern Cameroon, 8 Feared Dead

At least eight people have been killed in the neighbouring country Cameroon on Monday in a launched rocket attack blamed on the Islamist group Boko Haram in neighbouring Nigeria, security officials reported. 

A police officer said that the militants fired the rocket from the Nigerian town of Banki which hit the town of Amchide in the far north of Cameroon.

“The rocket landed in Amchide, killing eight civilians and injuring scores. We fear that the number of dead will increase,” said the policeman, who wants to remain anonymous.


A Cameroonian security agent said the rocket landed in a road where many people were on a shopping spree.

Boko Haram took control of Banki several weeks ago and the militants have tried to make incursions across the border into Amchide.

The residents of Amchide have set up self defence groups to fight off the Islamists.

In a separate attack, Boko Haram militants killed seven people on Monday in the town of Ngamdu in the remote northeast of Nigeria, residents and an official said, with reports indicating the victims were beheaded.
