By Kylie MacLellan LONDON (Reuters) - British interior minister Theresa May, the bookmakers' favourite to replace David Cameron as prime minister, said on Thursday there was no going back on Britain leaving the EU but that divorce talks would not start until the end of the year. "There must be no attempts to remain inside the EU, no attempts to rejoin it through the back door and no second referendum." As Britain reels from the decision to leave the EU, speculation has grown that whoever takes over from Cameron might try to find a way to keep the country in the bloc which buys nearly half the country's exports. Bookmakers make May, the favourite to succeed Cameron followed by Leave campaign leader and ex-London mayor Boris Johnson, with polls suggesting she is also the choice of Conservative Party members who will make the final decision once lawmakers have narrowed the field to two candidates.
Yaoundé (AFP) - A suicide bombing by a Boko Haram jihadist has killed 11 people in northern Cameroon, a provincial governor said Thursday, warning civilians not to breach special security measures aimed at preventing such attacks. "Seven people were killed immediately, including the bomber," the source said, adding that most of the victims were members of a local vigilante group tasked with hunting down Boko Haram fighters. "We are asking on the local population to wait until we give the go-ahead for the resumption of such activities, especially on the frontline," he said, referring to security measures put in place in the area in the wake of Boko Haram raids.
