Suicide bomber taken down by poisoned arrow | New York Post
YAOUNDE, Cameroon — Authorities in northern Cameroon say a local self-defense group used a poisoned arrow to kill a woman with explosives strapped to her body.
Midjiyawa Bakary, the governor of Cameroon’s Far North region, said Wednesday that the 40-year-old woman had crossed over from neighboring Nigeria along with a 14-year-old girl.
Local residents shot the poisoned arrow at the woman after she failed to stop as demanded. The girl also died when she detonated her own explosives.
