The Cameroonian army has killed about 100 Boko Haram militants during an operation in the far north region of Cameroon.

According to Xinhua, about 200 memmbers of the sect were also arrested in the operation, which happened on Friday night.

It said the operation took place in Doble, a place in the far-north of the region bordering Nigeria, and was conducted by the Cameroon air force and rapid intervention battalion, an elite army unit stationed in the north.

During the operation, three Cameroonian air force pilots were seriously injured.

In the same night, 23 Cameroonian civilians were killed and a village was burned by suspected Boko Haram militants in Mozogo, a place in far-north region.

The suspected Boko Haram militants are active in the north of Cameroon, often attacking nearby villages, pillaging properties of the villagers and sometimes taking foreign and local people as hostages.

The Cameroonian government has strengthened the military might this year by sending more troops in the north to fight against the militants.
