At least three civilians were injured after the terror group Boko Haram raided a locality in Cameroon's Far North Region, security and local sources confirmed on Sunday.
The incident occurred overnight into Sunday in the Amchide locality of the region.
"Two people were injured by bullets, and the other sustained machete injury," a local official in the region who asked not to be named told Xinhua by phone.
Boko Haram terrorists have intensified attacks on civilians in the region, according to security reports by the police.
Last week, Mathias Fombele Tayem, prefect of the Logone and Chari division of the region, warned that suicide bombers from Nigeria have infiltrated villages in the division to target civilians and security forces with explosive devices.
