The Cameroonian army killed 143 Boko Haram fighters who attacked a military base in the northern town of Kolofata on Monday, the government said, adding that one soldier had also died in the clashes.

The toll was “the heaviest loss yet” suffered by the Nigeria-based Boko Haram group on Cameroonian soil, Communications Minister and government spokesman Issa Tchiroma Bakary said in a statement read out on television and radio.

He said the attack began in the early hours when “several hundred” Islamist fighters took advantage of thick fog to cross over from Nigeria and tried to storm the town’s military base, where an elite army unit is stationed.
