YAOUNDE - At least seven people were killed in two bomb attacks on Sunday in the northern Cameroon town of Kolofata, according to government officials, in what appeared to be the latest attack by the Boko Haram Islamist militant group from nearby Nigeria.

At least three people were killed in the first explosion, which struck near a well in the town, while at least four people were killed by a second bomb near a church, according to the local deputy prefect.

"According to the information I have, there were seven killed in two attacks in Kolofata," Communication Minister Issa Tchiroma Bakary told Reuters.

Kolofata lies close to the border with northeast Nigeria and has repeatedly been the target of attacks by Boko Haram. Cameroon is a major contributor to a regional force expected to start operations against the Islamist group this year.
