Based on Amnesty International report, armed separatists in Cameroon’s Anglophone regions have stabbed to death and shot military personnel, burned down schools and attacked teachers on Tuesday.

Escalating violence in Cameroon has led to armed separatists and military forces  attack, and shot military personnel in the country's Anglophone regions.

Amnesty International reported, security forces have tortured people, fired on crowds and destroyed villages, in a spiral of violence that keeps getting more deadly.

Security forces have indiscriminately killed, arrested and tortured people during military operations which have also displaced thousands of civilians.

Samira Daoud, Amnesty International Deputy Director for West and Central Africa said, armed separatists have killed dozens of members of the security forces. They also carried out attacks designed to strike fear among the population, going as far as burning down schools and targeting teachers who did not enforce the boycott.

In February, the European Union called on the army to “proportionate use of force”.
The authorities in Yaoundé have repeatedly denied.
