At least 30 civilians were killed in four suicide bomb attacks in a remote town near Cameroon's border with Nigeria. More than 60 people were injured in the attacks, which occurred on Monday.
Two suicide bombers reportedly blew themselves up in a crowded local market of Bodo town while others struck at two separate locations in the town, according to Pulse Nigeria.
"There was a quadruple suicide bombing in the village of Bodo this morning," an official told Reuters news agency.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility. Authorities, however, blamed Nigeria-based militant group Boko Haram for the deadly attacks.
"We have information the four bombers came from Nigeria. We are investigating where they spent the night before attacking the market," regional governor Midjiyawa Bakari said, according to Al Jazeera.
Cameroon's communications minister, Issa Tchiroma Bakary, told reporters that the country's security forces had killed 17 militants in anti-Boko Haram raids into Nigeria. He also said Cameroon's forces would soon trace the militants involved in the Bodo bombings.
Cameroon is part of a regional task force set up to eliminate Boko Haram, which has killed nearly 20,000 people since 2009. Nigeria, Chad, Niger and Benin are four others nation member of the taskforce formed to fight the Nigeria-born militant group.
