Boko Haram Attacks Town in North Cameroon, Killing One

An army source said Boko Haram attacked a town in northern Cameroon on Monday, killing at least one person, The attack comes less than a week after the group issued threats against the Central African country.

The Nigerian group’s insurgency, which is thought to have killed more than 10,000 people last year, has intensified in recent months and is posing a growing threat to neighbors Cameroon, Niger and Chad. A Local paper said the Islamic group had since been pushed back from the town. Last week, a man who said he is the leader of the Nigerian militant sect, threatened to intensify violence in Cameroon unless it scraps its constitution and embraces Islam.
