Displacement Doubles in North Cameroon in Flight From Boko Haram

The number of people in northern Cameroon who have fled their homes fearing the violence in neighboring Nigeria and cross-border raids by Islamist sect Boko Haram doubled in March to 117,000, a United Nations survey showed.
Boko Haram, which wants to carve out an Islamic caliphate in northern Nigeria, recently expanded its activities into Niger and Cameroon for the first time since launching its insurgency in 2009.
It has killed 6,400 people in 337 incidents since January 2014, the United Nations has said.
