Cameroon's army kills 40 Boko Haram terrorists

Cameroon's military killed at least 40 Boko Haram terrorist in the northwest part of the country, a government radio reported Sunday, shortly after the release of two Italian priests and a Canadian nun suspected to have been held by the Islamist group.

The gunfight, which led to killing of the insurgents, took place in Kouserri town, close to the border with Nigeria and Chad.

This is coming a day after Nigeria labelled Cameroon the weakest link in its fight against the extremist sect despite Cameroon's decision to send 1,000 troops far north to fight the insurgents.

The Nigerian Government considers Cameroon as not so cooperative, in comparison to Niger and Chad.

Currently, Niger allows Nigerian soldiers cross into its borders to pursue Boko Haram militants. A similar understanding is being worked out with Chad, but there is none with Cameroon.
