Boko Haram kidnap 21 civilians in north Cameroon: officials

Yaoundé: Boko Haram militants have kidnapped 21 civilians in the north of Cameroon near the Nigerian frontier, police and local officials said on Thursday.
Since it began a decade ago, Nigeria’s Boko Haram insurgency has killed more than 27,000 people, displaced some two million, and spilled over into neighbouring Cameroon, Chad and Niger.
“Boko Haram attacked around 2300 (22:00 GMT) in Mbreche district, about 30 kilometres (20 miles) from the Nigeria border. They kidnapped 21 people, but four managed to escape,” an official said. (AFP)
