Violence Continues to Disrupt Life in Many Parts of Cameroon

Many people have fled the English-speaking regions of Cameroon as fighting has intensified in the Anglophone regions between security forces and armed groups. Unrest in the country began in November 2016 when English-speaking teachers and lawyers protested against the overbearing use of the French language. Demands were then made by separatists, for the independence of the English-speaking from the French-speaking regions.

Hundreds of fighters from anglophone regions of Cameroon are fighting for a new state they want named Ambazonia (file photo).
