Yaoundé, Cameroon, Dec 4, 2015 / 06:48 am
Cameroon's government has said a multi-national military action has freed 900 hostages of the Islamist extremist group Boko Haram.
Joint forces from Cameroon, Chad, Nigeria and Benin reportedly killed over 100 militants and arrested 100 more in late November. The military operations appear to have taken place in the Sambisa Forest, located in northern Cameroon and northeastern Nigeria. Soldiers who raided the Boko Haram groups seized weapons, munitions, and black-and-white flags of the Islamic State group.
