Twelve people killed by Boko Haram in Northern Cameroon
On the 8th of January, a suicide bomber blew herself up in the middle of a crowded park in the village of Mozogo in the Mayo Tsanaga, Cameroon.
Boko haram had raided the village of Mozogo in the Mayo Tsanaga, Cameroon. As they entered the town, they shot sporadically throughout the area, scaring the villagers to all run. Many of these villagers ran to a local park for hiding. Unbeknownst to them, Boko Haram had a small girl hide among the villagers while wearing a suicide vest.
In the aftermath of the explosion, twelve local farmers lay dead, as well as the suicide bomber and one Boko Haram militant. It is unclear if the young girl was voluntarily doing this or forced to by the violent group, who has kidnapped hundreds of people and forced many of them to commit this same act.
