4 bombs explode in Cameroon’s Anglophone region

At least four makeshift bombs exploded in the main city of Cameroon’s English-speaking region overnight, the AFP news agency reports, quoting security sources.

“Four home-made bombs exploded in Bamenda, one at 21:00 and the three others at 3:00 am,” the source said.

The AFP report says that there were no causalities and that the blasts caused minor damage.

The restive Anglophone region has experienced months of protests against what residents say is discrimination by the francophone majority.

Protesters have also been calling for secession, with some openly flying a blue and white flag of a would-be independent anglophone Cameroon.

Ambazonia would be the name of the breakaway state.
