The Boko Haram militants have killed at least 70 people in a raid in Cameroon’s Fotokol town on the Nigeria border, reports said.
The militants targeted people in their homes and the mosque and burned down many buildings.
The Islamist fighters were finally forced to retreat by troops of a regional force that includes soldiers from Chad and Cameroon.
The Chadian military claimed on Tuesday that it had killed over 200 militants in the battle to recapture the nearby Nigerian town of Gamboru.
