Two suicide bombers targeted a school in northern Cameroon on Thursday, local officials said

There were no reported deaths, while the attack left some people injured.

"The double attack occurred in the public school in the town of Kerawa," an official said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. However, the Boko Haram militant group frequently conducts similar attacks throughout the region.

Last week, four suicide bombers killed about 32 people and wounded 66 in a village in Cameroon's Far North Region, in the deadliest of a string of recent attacks claimed by the militant group.

Cameroonian troops form part of an 8,700-strong regional force created to defeat Boko Haram, which has waged a six-year campaign to carve out a separate state in northeastern Nigeria.
