Officials in Italy say suspected Boko Haram gunmen have kidnapped two Italian priests and a Canadian nun in northern Cameroon.
Authorities say the abduction happened during the night between Friday and Saturday near the Nigerian border.
Kidnappings of Westerners have become common in the remote and sparsely populated region, where borders between countries are porous.
The priests abducted overnight were identified as Giampaolo Marta and Gianantonio Allegri from the Vicenza diocese in northeastern Italy.
The identity of the nun was not immediately clear.
