We have mapped in the 2.7 mm continuum and 12CO with the PdBI the IR-dark "tail" that crosses the IC 1396N globule from south to north, and is the most extincted part of this cloud. These observations have allowed us to distinguish all possible associations of molecular hydrogen emission features by revealing two well-collimated low-mass protostellar outflows at the northern part of the globule. The outflows are located almost in the plane of the sky and are colliding with each other towards the position of a strong 2.12 μm H2 line emission feature.

Based on observations carried out with the IRAM Plateau de Bure. IRAM is supported by INSU/CNRS (France), MPG (Germany), and IGN (Spain).
