Suspected fighters from the Nigerian Islamist group Boko Haram kidnapped around 80 people Sunday, over half of whom were children, during a cross-border attack in neighboring Cameroon, officials said.

The kidnappings were the largest in Cameroon since the terrorist group began expanding its operations to adjacent countries, including Chad, Reuters reports. Three people were also killed during the attacks.

“According to our initial information, around 30 adults, most of them herders, and 50 young girls and boys aged between 10 and 15 years were abducted,” an army officer in Cameroon told Reuters.

  1. And this neighboring country hasn’t declared war? Cameroon is obviously unable to defend themselves. Obviously Boko Haram has the upper hand here. The slavery is in these poor children’s future.
    Because the weak in a place like Africa have no rights. That is the reality of the situation.
    There is a price to pay for not being able to defend one’s self against these people.
    If the government did not act in this country, at least half of those parents would be loading up their rifles and scopes and going after them.
    The first and only time these slavers would know what happened to them would be when the survivors were picked up and shot. Or hung from the nearest tree.
