In October, authorities in Far North Cameroon had to close more than 60 schools along the northern border with Nigeria to protect children and teaching staff from repeated Boko Haram attacks, mainly by women and children used as suicide bombers.
Most of Cameroon’s muslims, comprising around 20% of the population, live in the Far North region of this predominantly Christian country.
In the Far North, rural Christian communities are frequently subjected to Boko Haram violence.
Eyewitness accounts of attacks describe heavily armed militants encircling Christian villages, shouting throughout the night as they kill, loot and burn.
Boko Haram has stated its aim is to establish an Islamic caliphate extending from its base in north-east Nigeria.
