15 Killed After Two Female Suicide Bombers Attack Cameroon Market

At least 15 people were killed and 42 were wounded after two female suicide bombers detonated themselves at a busy market in northern Cameroon, the government said Thursday, according to The Associated Press.

The two female attackers entered the town of Waza near the Nigerian border late Wednesday. One of the attackers detonated their explosives near a group of young people, according to Governor Midjiyawa Bakary.

No organizations has claimed responsibility for the attack, but NPR’s Ofeibea Quist-Arcton said it bears the hallmarks of the Nigeria-based Boko Haram extremist group.

“After months of relative calm,” she said, “Cameroon’s far north region, bordering neighboring Nigeria, has witnessed a resurgence in attacks by suspected Boko Haram insurgents.”

More than 20,000 people have been killed by Boko Haram throughout their eight-year existence.

Thousands more have been abducted by the Islamic extremist group.

Boko Haram has increasingly coerced girls and young women to carry out attacks on targets. Young women who have escaped the group have reported that the extremists drug girls and force them to carry out suicide attacks.

According to UNICEF, Boko Haram is believed to have used at least 117 children in suicide attacks, 80 percent of whom were girls.

Violence in Nigeria has spilled into neighboring countries, including Cameroon’s northern border, according to Quist-Arcton.

“Extremist violence has spilled over Nigeria’s borders into Cameroon, Niger and Chad, driving millions of people from their homes across a huge region known as the Lake Chad basin,” Quist-Arcton said. “The neighbors have joined forces in a regional multinational military operation to try to subdue Boko Haram.”

The terrorist attacks in Cameroon’s far north region have forced more than 13,000 Nigerian refugees fleeing Boko Haram back into their own country.

The suicide bombings and raids on villages have been “complicating humanitarian operations and subjecting civilians to persistent danger,” the U.N. humanitarian agency announced this week.

U.N.’s World Food Program has been forced to cut food assistance to 200,000 Nigerian refugees since January due to lack of funding.

The U.N. has called the violence caused by Boko Haram in northeastern Nigeria the largest humanitarian crisis in more than 70 years.
