Cameroon Hit by Violence Ahead of Presidential Poll

Cameroonian political parties have criss-crossed the country ahead of the presidential elections on Sunday October 7. Eight candidates representing a string of opposition parties are vying to oust 85-year-old incumbent President Paul Biya, who has ruled Cameroon since 1982 and is also seeking a seventh term.
