Heavy explosion heard in Yaounde

Saturday, July 2, a bomb has allegedly been detonated at the Mokolo market in Yaoundé.

A sudden loud explosion was heard at the Mokolo market in Yaoundé. It would be a homemade explosive, according to the first witnesses on the scene, spreading terror across this crowded market. The explosion, which caused several injuries, is still under investigation as to its cause.

In the initial pictures that have been circulated online, we can see that the police have set up a security cordon while they wait to define the specifics of this occurrence. Even if these explosions are uncommon in the center of the city of Cameroon, one of these explosions specifically targeted this market last year.
