YAOUNDE (Reuters) - Fighters from Islamist group Boko Haram killed at least ten people in overnight attacks on two villages in northern Cameroon, two senior army sources told Reuters on Friday.

"There were consecutive attacks by Boko Haram in Bia and Blaberi in the district of Kolofata in the early morning," said one officer, who asked not to be named.

He said the militants had fled across the nearby border into Nigeria by the time the army arrived.
