Association defending for victims of terrorism, Mon Jul 13, 2015; A twin suicide attack by suspected Boko Haram terrorist group in the northern Cameroon town of Fotokol late on Sunday killed at least 13 people including a Chadian soldier, authorities said.
The first explosion went off inside a bar near a Cameroon special forces camp just after sundown as people were breaking the Ramadan fast, a senior Cameroon military officer told
The second explosion followed as soldiers approached the bar, the officer said.
Chad, Niger, Cameroon, Nigeria and Benin have launched a joint military operation to fight the insurgency, which has killed thousands and threatens to destabilize the region.
The group is suspected of launching a similar attack in Chad’s capital, about 60 km (40 miles) east of Fotokol, on Saturday. A man dressed in a burka blew himself up in the main market, killing 15 people.
