Cameroon: two dead in an attack

Two people were killed in an attack on alleged separatists in the English-speaking North West.

The victims are a soldier and the commander of the Bali Research Brigade, a commune located about 7 km from Bamenda, the capital of North West.

They were beheaded, according to security sources. The remains of the bodies were taken to the morgue of the Bamenda hospital.

For nearly two years, the English-speaking regions of Cameroon have been shaken by a socio-political crisis.

In 2016, lawyers and teachers went on strike to demand respect for English as an official language equal to French.
