YAOUNDE, Feb 10 : About 30 passengers of a bus were kidnapped on Monday by suspected Boko Haram militants in a town in Cameroon along the border with Nigeria, military sources told Xinhua.
The kidnapping took place in Tourou in the Far North Region, the sources said. "The whereabouts of the passengers were not known. They were certainly attacked by the militants in an ambush."
Nine Cameroonian soldiers were injured in an attack Sunday by Boko Haram militants in Kerawa town in the region. Militants also killed 11 bus passengers Jan 1 in the same region.
Boko Haram has proved to be a major security threat in Africa's most populous country, Nigeria, since 2009.     ?IANS
