Boko Haram Wreaks Havoc in Northern Cameroon

The UN Refugee Agency has strongly condemned an attack on a site hosting 800 internally displaced people near the village of Nguetchewe in northern Cameroon. At least 18 people were killed, and more than 11 injured in the early hours of August 2. The UN says these attacks as well as those in Nigeria and other countries in the Sahel region are going mostly unnoticed by a world focused on the novel coronavirus pandemic. The United States has raised the alarm that the Al-Qaeda and ISIS insurgent groups have started penetrating the northwestern part of Nigeria and looking to expand further south.
