The attack on a popular night spot evening in the town of Maroua comes just days after other violence blamed on Boko Haram militants left at least 20 dead.

Midjiyawa Bakari, governor of the far northern region of Cameroon, said the authorities are still counting the dead and wounded.

While there was no immediate claim of responsibility, Islamic militants from the Boko Haram group have been blamed for scores of attacks in the region this year.

Boko Haram, which was founded in neighbouring Nigeria, has vowed to attack Cameroon because the country has supported the Nigerian military's mission to defeat the group.
