Close Call! Female Suicide Bomber Is Killed By Poison Arrow Moments Before She Reaches Target


A local self-defence group in Cameroon killed a female suicide bomber using a poisoned arrow just moments before she was set to blow herself up. The 40-year-old woman, who had explosives strapped to her body, had crossed over from neighboring Nigeria along with a 14-year-old girl.

Girls abused as sex slaves by the group are psychologically damaged and therefore more vulnerable, the army says

Local residents shot the poisoned arrow at the woman after she failed to stop as demanded. The girl also died when she detonated her own explosives.  Residents near the northern town of Mora said at least five other suicide bombers have died in the last several days.

The attacks were reported shortly before Cameroon’s president Paul Biya left for Nigeria to discuss ways of ending Boko Haram violence with his Nigerian counterpart.  Local governments on the Cameroonian-Nigerian border have allowed self-defence groups to bear arms following the threat of Boko Haram.

The groups have the power to carry out intelligence gathering missions, question travellers, and denounce to the military anyone deemed suspect.  Young girls have been taken by the jihadi group and used as sex slaves before being forced to carry out suicide bomb attacks as part of a cruel tactic increasingly used by the struggling extremists.

Since August 2014, the jihadi group has carried out 336 attacks in Cameroon, according to the Cameroonian army, which has lost 57 of its own men while defending the north

A regional offensive last year drove the insurgents from most of their traditional strongholds, denying them their dream of an Islamic emirate in northeastern Nigeria. An 8,700-strong regional force of troops from Benin, Cameroon, Chad, Niger, and Nigeria is seeking to finish the job but now Boko Haram have been using guerrilla tactics to target civilians.
