: Two female suicide bombers attacked a mosque in a town near Cameroon's border with Nigeria during morning prayers Wednesday, killing at least 10 people and wounding about a dozen others, the governor of the region said.

The attack in the town of Kolofata is believed to have been carried out by Boko Haram members who crossed the border into Cameroon a few days ago, said Midjiyawa Bakari. The town of Kolofata in Cameroon's far north near the border has been repeatedly attacked by Boko Haram, a Nigerian Islamic extremist group.

Another suicide attack blamed on Boko Haram in December in Cameroon killed at least seven people and wounded 30 others, officials said. In September, suicide bombers killed nine people in Kolofata and wounded 18.

The Islamic militants began stepping up their attacks early last year on neighboring Cameroon and other countries that have supported the Nigerian military's effort to crush Boko Haram.

The extremist group's six-year insurgency has killed about 20,000 people and displaced 2.3 million, according to Amnesty International and the United Nations.
