It's not known how many people were killed, or exactly how many were taken away by the jihadists, who also set fire to more than 20 homes. In recent years, almost all of the Boko Harram's attacks have been inside Nigeria. But now, villages, towns and barracks in Cameroon, are also been targeted.

Paul Wood reports from Beirut. “Not only was a senior Hezbollah commander killed in the Israeli strike, but also were told a commander of Iranian Revolutionary Guard to compound the blow, the Hazbollah dead also included Jihad Mughniyeh, the son of the late Hezbollah military chief Imad Mughniyeh. It's not clear if this strike was another targeted killing as Israel calls them.
Instead Israeli security sources quoted the saying that one of its helicopters on the board with Syria fired missile into a car conducting reconnaissance for a Hezbollah attack.”
