Cameroon troops killed around 100 members of Nigeria’s Boko Haram Islamist group and freed 900 hostages in a three-day operation in the far north of the country, the defence ministry said Wednesday, according to an AFP report.

It quoted Defence Minister Joseph Beti Assomo as saying in a statement broadcast on national radio: “A special clean-up operation from November 26 to 28” against Boko Haram fighters in the border area with Nigeria, where troops seized Islamic State (IS) flags, “neutralised more than 100 jihadists.”
