Eight people were killed and 21 wounded in a suspected suicide bombing by Boko Haram early on Friday morning in Cameroon’s Far North region, local officials said.

 

The Islamist militant group wants to establish an Islamic caliphate in northeastern Nigeria, and its attacks have spilled across the borders of neighboring countries.

 

“There were two suicide bombers,” said a local official. “Only the first bomb exploded.”
