ABUJA (Reuters) - Suspected rebels from Nigeria's Islamist militant group Boko Haram attacked a Chinese plant in northern Cameroon near the town of Waza, a local governor told Reuters on Saturday.

The governor of Far North province Augustine Fonka Awa confirmed the attack but declined to give details. The BBC reported on its website that at least one Chinese person was killed in the attack and at least one other taken hostage.
