Mamfe, Cameroon: District Hospital Set Ablaze
Suspected separatist fighters have reportedly set ablaze Mamfe District Hospital in Manyu division of the South West Region. The incident happened in the late hours of Wednesday June 8 and left the entire structure in ruins. An intense gunbattle between the Cameroon army and Amba Boys preceded the tragic event.
There is no let-up in the violence and destruction leading to frequent loss of life in the ongoing conflict between the central government and the anglophone region of West Cameroon.
Frequent calls for dialogue and peace negotiations by the region’s bishops have so far fallen on deaf ears.
