Cameroon soldiers fought militants from Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram who raided a village in the Far North region, local officials said on Friday, a day after a similar attack in the area and an attempted suicide bombing in Chad.

"Since yesterday, Boko Haram members raided the Kerawa village...They slit the throats of between three and seven people yesterday and killed others," said one local official, who asked not to be identified, adding that there was not yet an official death toll.
