Suspected rebels from Nigeria's Islamist militant group Boko Haram attacked a Chinese plant in northern Cameroon near the town of Waza, a local governor has told the Reuters news agency.
The governor of Far North province Augustine Fonka Awa confirmed the attack but declined to give details. The BBC reported on its website that at least one Chinese person was killed in the attack and at least one other taken hostage.
British Foreign Secretary William Hague is set to join a meeting with African nations today to discuss efforts to fight the militant group.
The Nigerian military has flown more than 300 sorties in the hunt for the abducted schoolgirls, a Major has told ITV News' Rageh Omaar.
A newly released video from Boko Haram reportedly shows the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls.
The man who started a viral hashtag campaign in support of the kidnapped Nigerian schoolgirls says it has forced the government to act.
