A local official says a suicide bomber detonated explosives at a Cameroon market near the border with Nigeria, killing at least three people and injuring at least 11 other people.
Midjiyawa Bakary,Cameroon’s Far North region governor, said a young man suspected to be from Nigeria detonated the bomb after riding on a motorcycle into the market in Mora at high speed.
The governor says three people were seriously injured and rushed to the local hospital before being transferred to another town for specialized care.
He said that it was possible one of the three victims was also on the motorbike.
Another security source said authorities were convinced that the attack was the work of Boko Haram, which has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL).
