A double suicide attack killed six civilians on Wednesday in Cameroon’s restive Far North, which is regularly hit by Nigeria-based Boko Haram jihadists, security sources said.

The deadly blasts happened in Kolofata, where nine people died in a double suicide bombing in early June.

“There were eight killed, six civilians and the two attackers,” a source close to Cameroon’s security service said of Wednesday’s violence.
