Nigeria-based Boko Haram jihadis are behind horrendous violence in neighboring Cameroon, where they have kidnapped more than 1,000 children and used some youngsters as human shields, a top UN official said.At the height of the attacks in northern Cameroon in February, Boko Haram deployed children on the frontline, Rochdi said.Rochdi said it remained unclear if the children were from Cameroon, Nigeria or elsewhere.Some 240,000 Central Africans have taken refuge in Cameroon since the conflict in their country escalated in 2013, joining nearly 100,000 already there, and around 70,000 Nigerians have flooded in since last year.
