Cameroonian officials say at least 82 former Boko Haram fighters from Nigeria and Chad, along with their families, have surrendered to authorities in the past week. Authorities say they’re the latest among hundreds of the militant Islamists who have been defecting since May when the group’s leader was killed. Cameroon plans to deport the former fighters as the influx has overwhelmed rehabilitation centres along the border.
