Suspected Boko Haram fighters have kidnapped more than 30 people in northern Cameroon after attacking several towns, residents said.

Bouba Kaina, a resident of where the first attack took place, confirmed that a bus was seized by the insurgents with 20 people on board.

The bus was then driven towards the border with Nigeria, about 11 miles away.

Early Monday, another group of fighters attacked the town of Kolofata, looting food and livestock.

Boko Haram fighters have escalated their attacks outside Nigeria, striking multiple times inside neighbouring Cameroon and Niger in recent days.

Neighbouring countries are planning a military effort to subdue the group blamed for killing 10,000 people over the past year.
