More than 100 suspected Nigerian Islamic sect Boko
Haram militants were killed and over 200 arrested
during an operation conducted by Cameroonian army
on Friday night in Far-North Region of Cameroon, an
army source told Xinhua over phone Saturday.
The operation took place in Doble, a place in Far-North
Region bordering Nigeria, and was conducted by
Cameroon Air Force and Rapid Intervention Battalion,
an elite army unit stationing in the north.
During the operation, three Cameroonian air force pilots
were seriously injured, the source said.
In the same night, 23 Cameroonian civilians were killed
and a village was burned by suspected Boko Haram
militants in Mozogo, a place in Far-North Region.
The suspected Boko Haram militants are active in the
north of Cameroon, they often attack the villages in the
area, pillaging properties of the villagers and sometimes
taking foreign and local people as hostages.
Xinhua also reports that the Cameroonian government
has strengthened the military might this year by
sending more troops in the north to fight against the
militants.
