Boko Haram Islamists on Friday seized control of a town in the far north of Cameroon which lies on the border with Nigeria, security and regional sources said.
"They now control Kerawa," a security source told AFP on condition of anonymity, referring to the Nigerian Islamist group.
The information was confirmed by another source close to the regional authorities, who said an unspecified number of civilians had been killed in the assault.
"Boko Haram has controlled Kerawa since Friday morning," the source said.
