Separatist rebels Boko Haram from Nigeria are terrorising vulnerable Cameroonians and "regrouping" for fresh attacks, the UN's resident humanitarian coordinator in Cameroon said on Wednesday.

Najat Rochdi said the Nigerian rebels have crossed into Cameroon, kidnapping children and burning crops "whenever they can" in the far north of the country.

Amid fears of a serious cholera outbreak among the country's 100,000 internally displaced, Rochdi describes the impact of Boko Haram's "hit-and-run" tactics to Daniel Johnson.
