At least 2 police killed in flashpoint Cameroon city of Buea

AFP  |  Yaounde 

At least two police officers were killed yesterday in Buea, a city in western that has become the centre of a campaign for independence by English-speaking separatists, a local source said today.

A separate hospital source however said five police, as well as one civilian, had died.

The deaths mark a fresh escalation in violence between the security forces and armed separatists who want two English-speaking regions to become independent from the rest of the French-speaking country.
