DOUALA (Reuters) - At least 12 people were killed and over 40 wounded in a suicide bomb attack in a small town in northern Cameroon near the Nigerian border late on Wednesday, an senior army source and a local official told Reuters.

No group claimed responsibility for the attack, which occurred in the town of Waza, five miles from the Nigerian border in a region frequently targeted by Boko Haram militants.
