Female suicide bombers kill five in Cameroon attack
Four female suicide bombers blew themselves up in a flashpoint area of northern Cameroon on Saturday, killing five civilians including a traditional chief, the regional governor said.
One of the women attackers set off her explosives outside the house of the local chief in a village near Fotokol, a town often targeted by Boko Haram Islamists.
He and four members of his family were killed, governor Midjiyawa Bakari told AFP.
The other women blew themselves up but did not kill anyone else.
