At least 11 people have died in the Nigerian border town of Gomboru in an apparent attack by the Boko Haram militant group, which had ceded the territory to Cameroonian forces a few weeks ago.

Witnesses say the deadly attack began Wednesday, just days after Cameroonian forces withdrew from the town, leaving the town exposed to attack.
