Cameroon increases military action against Anglophone separatists

The government of Cameroon this week increased the deployment of troops in the Anglophone southwest region of the country in an escalating crackdown on Anglophone separatists. 

Thousands of residents have been ordered to leave their homes by the government. Many thousands have already fled after government troops quashed peaceful protests and carried out a number of reprisal attacks. 

The separatists who have launched an armed uprising against the Francophone capital have killed at least 8 soldiers and officers in the past month, Reuters reported. 

Anglophone separatists are campaigning for an independent state of Ambazonia.
