About 30 killed in Boko Haram attack in Cameroon's remote north

YAOUNDE, June 12 (Reuters) - About 30 people were killed, including 16 Cameroonian soldiers, in an attack carried out by Islamist group Boko Haram on a small island on Lake Chad in Cameroon’s remote far north on Sunday, local mayor Ali Ramat told Reuters.

The death toll in the district of Darak, confirmed by a military source, is one of the worst atrocities carried out by Boko Haram in Cameroon in years.
