A suicide bomber who was described as a “young girl” has killed five children on Tuesday night and wounded two others.

According to Agence France Presse, AFP, sources said Wednesday that the attack occurred in a northern region of Cameroon plagued by Boko Haram attacks.

“A suicide bomber blew herself up (on Tuesday) at around 7.45 pm (1845 GMT)” in the village of Zamga, two kilometres (1.2 miles) from the Nigerian border, said a security officer responsible for the zone, reached from the capital Yaounde.

“Five children were killed and two others wounded,” he said on condition of anonymity, adding that the suicide bomber was also killed in the blast.

The attack and the death toll were confirmed to AFP by another security source. A group of children was playing when “a young girl slipped in” among them, triggering her explosive charge, the safety officer explained.

On Sunday and Monday, at least 20 people were killed in attacks by the Islamist group Boko Haram in Nigeria and Cameroon.
