Cameroon and Chad

Cameroon has established a commission to investigate the alleged killing of civilians in Ngarbuh, a village in the Northwest region, state television CRTV reported on Friday.

The commission, set up on Thursday, has eight days to deliver the findings on the incident that took place on Feb. 14.

There were allegations that the Cameroonian army killed more than 20 civilians in Ngarbuh, most of them children. The army denied the allegations, but said an accidental explosion killed a woman and four children during a battle with armed separatists.

Cameroon has increased attacks on separatists in the two Anglophone regions of Northwest and Southwest since President Paul Biya vowed in December last year to combat separatists “who persist in going down the wrong road and continue to use violence.”

According to the United Nations, over 700,000 people have been displaced overseas or internally since separatists started clashing with government forces in 2017 in Northwest and Southwest regions of Cameroon. Enditem
