(CNN) -- [Updated 3:30 p.m. Monday, February 25] This photo is from the main market in Yaounde, the capital of Cameroon.

A French family based in Yaounde was kidnapped last week during a trip to Waza National Park in northern Cameroon. It is suspected that the family -- four young children, their two parents and an uncle -- were kidnapped by militants from the Boko Haram movement and taken to Nigeria.

Boko Haram, whose name means "Western education is sacrilege," has killed hundreds of people during its campaign to impose strict Islamic law in northern Nigeria. It has attacked Christians as well as moderate Muslims in the country, and last week's kidnapping has fueled fears that Boko Haram may be targeting Westerners as well.

"Alice Yu" was the first reader to correctly guess Yaounde in the comments this week. Well done, Alice.

[Original post] Do you know where this photo was taken?

If you think you know the answer -- or if you just want to take a wild guess -- post it in the comments area below. Later in the day, we'll reveal where the photo was taken and give credit to those who figured it out first. (The more detail, the better!)

Each Monday morning, we'll post a new photo and challenge you to tell us its origin. The photo might be related to a prominent news story or theme -- or it might just be something that caught our eye.

Good luck!
