Scores killed in Cameroon clashes


The Chadian military said in a statement on Friday that the violent clashes erupted after a large group of terrorists attacked an army contingent near Fotokol town in Cameroon’s Far North Region.

The statement added at least 12 soldiers were also wounded in attacks carried out by the terrorist group on Thursday and Friday in the troubled region.

The N’Djamena government has sent a convoy of troops and 400 military vehicles into neighboring Cameroon to deal with the growing threat of militancy.

Cameroon’s President Paul Biya had announced on January 15 that neighboring Chad was going to send military troops to help Cameroonian forces fight the Boko Haram terrorists.

On January 12, the Cameroonian army killed 143 Boko Haram terrorists as they mounted an offensive on a military camp in the northern border town of Kolofata.

Cameroon also launched airstrikes against Boko Haram on December 28, after nearly 1,000 terrorists from the group assaulted a military camp located near the northern border. The Cameroonian troops in the camp were forced to flee. However, the base was retaken later.
