    Default

    An overview by an ICG analyst:https://sustainablesecurity.org/2016...m-in-cameroon/

    A couple of key points:
    ...the military cooperation between Chad and Nigeria or Nigeria and Cameroon that, despite the bottlenecks recorded at the beginning, has improved significantly over recent months to the extent that the right of hot pursuit is now a reality....No serious brainstorming is done on development issues and the fight against radicalization at the regional level. In the same light, no reflection has been initiated on the ways to end this crisis now that Boko Haram is weakened.

    Default A nation divided

    So after four months of disorder in the English-speaking region of Cameroon a Nairobi-based reporter writes a report and he headline:
    A nation divided: tensions mount in Cameroon as English speakers marginalised by Francophone majority

    I had not seen any reporting of this, but one must wonder if Boko Haram are the winners here.

    The BBC World Service two weeks ago had a radio podcast:http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04tnn64

    Default Violent English-speaking separatists

    Not exactly a surprise, this report indicates there is a level of violence, bitterness over the government's response, refugees and Nigeria extraditing dissident leaders back to the Cameroon.
