8 people have been killed with 45 injured after a double suicide bomb attack at a funeral in Nguetchéwé, a town in the Far North region of Cameroon, Cameroonian officials said.
The official casualty is an update of the previously reported number which had at least 10 deaths and 30 injured.
According to Africanews correspondent in Cameroon, Joel Honore Kouam, the blast occured Wednesday morning, February 10, when a bereaved family was receiving guests at a funeral in the town which has been regularly attacked by Boko Haram terrorists.
The two female suicide bombers disguised themselves as guests and detonated their bombs right before the bereaved family when it was their turn to express their condolences, the correspondent reported.
This is the second attack this year in the town of Nguetchéwé with the earlier, which occured on January 18 at a mosque, claiming five lives.
According to Cameroonian authorities, close to 1200 people have been killed ever since Boko Haram started attacking the Far North region in 2013.
