Nigerian Boko Haram militants kidnapped the wife of Cameroon's vice prime minister and killed at least three people on Sunday in a cross-border attack involving more than 200 assailants in the northern town of Kolofata, Cameroon officials said.

Another really awful headline.
Cameroon is about 20% Muslim. That's about the point where trouble starts.
Boko Haram is getting logistical and other support from Cameroon's Muslim community. Cameroon needs to deal with that, hard.

“Cameroon is about 20% Muslim. That’s about the point where trouble starts.”
It starts earlier than that; France is only 10% Muslim, we have even less here in the US, and in our case the government completely kowtows to them...
