Troop commander says Nigeria's Islamic extremist group Boko Haram is suspected

Four suicide bombers have attacked a town in Cameroon's Far North region near the border with Nigeria, killing at least 28 people and wounding 65 others, local officials say.
Governor Midjiyawa Bakari said Monday that two attackers detonated explosives at a market and two others blew themselves up in the town of Bodo. He said that the wounded are in the hospital and that the attackers came from Nigeria.
A Cameroon troop commander, Gen. Jacob Kodji, confirmed the attack and said Nigeria's Islamic extremist group Boko Haram is suspected. He said soldiers have been deployed to the area.
The Islamic militants, who have killed thousands in a six-year insurgency, began stepping up attacks early last year on neighbouring Cameroon and other countries contributing in efforts to crush Boko Haram.
