According to Cameroonian officials, this morning members of the Boko Haram insurgency launched an attack on the home of Cameroonian Vice Prime Minister Amadou Ali, and kidnapped his wife. At least three people were killed in the attack. In a separate strike, local religious leader and mayor Seini Boukar Lamine was also taken from his home. This is the third time the Nigerian Islamist group has launched attacks across the border into Cameroon since Friday.
