At least a dozen civilians and a Chadian soldier were killed in two suicide attacks by suspected Boko Haram militants in the northern Cameroon town of Fotokol late on Sunday, a senior Cameroonian military officer said.

"The attacks targeted a Cameroon special forces camp in the town. The first explosion took place at a bar close to the camp and a second followed some minutes later behind the camp," the officer said, requesting anonymity.
