The Guardian: Cameroon’s army, backed by a regional taskforce, has killed at least 100 members of the militant Islamist Boko Haram group and freed 900 people it had held hostage, the west African country’s defence ministry has said. Cameroon is part of an 8,700-strong regional group, also comprising troops from Chad, Niger, Nigeria and Benin, that aims to destroy Boko Haram, which, though based mainly in Nigeria, has become a major threat to wider regional security.
