“Suicide bombers kill six, injure 30 in Cameroon,” Agence France-Presse, February 10, 2016 (thanks to Goodness):
At least six civilians were killed and over 30 injured Wednesday in a double suicide attack in Cameroon’s northern border region with Nigeria, which is regularly attacked by Boko Haram fighters, security sources said.
The attackers, who were also killed, were both female, said a source.
“Six civilians were killed as well as two suicide bombers who blew themselves up” during a funeral wake in the village of Nguetchewe, a source told AFP, adding that between 30-50 people were injured.
“The villagers were gathered for the wake when two suicide attackers joined them, pretending to be family members,” said the source.
The two female bombers “blew themselves up at 6:20 am, just when people who had spent the night there were preparing for a meal.”
A police source in the region said several children, including a boy aged six and a 15-year-old, were among the victims. At least one member of a local committee set up in response to the upsurge in Islamic attacks was also killed….
