Cameroon: Two fishermen slaughtered in the Far North


At least two civilians were found slaughtered on Tuesday morning in the Cameroon region of the Far North following an incursion of alleged elements of the Islamist sect Boko Haram.

The attack took place in the early morning around 2am local time in Ngamé, a small town in the border area of ​​Logone-et-Chari. The two victims, both fishermen, were a Nigerian in his forties, and a Chadian in his 50s, a local source said.

"When the attackers burst into the locality, they first targeted their victims. Once they slaughtered them while returning from a fishing trip, the suspected jihadists fled. Which means a settling of accounts. But I can not explain to you the nature of their reports, "said an inhabitant of the scene of anonymous drama.

In early April, still in the Logone-et-Chari, Boko Haram killed at least five soldiers of the Cameroonian army responsible for the fight against the terrorist group.
