The aftermath of a suicide bombing in Cameroon suspected to be the work of Boko Haram militants.
It was one of two such attacks in what seems to be the deepest incursion yet by the Islamist group into Cameroon from neighbouring Nigeria.
At least 13 people died. More than 30 have been wounded.
The attackers targeted a market and a densely populated neighbourhood, both in Maroua, the capital of Cameroon’s far north region.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility but Boko Haram has stepped up attacks on countries bordering its north-east Nigerian stronghold.
Cameroon, Chad and Niger have all contributed troops to a regional offensive against Boko Haram which has allied itself to Islamic State.
