Cameroon Accelerating Toward Armed Conflict

The roots of the conflict go back to Cameroon's independence almost 60 years ago

The House Foreign Affairs subcommittee on Africa, Global Health, Global Human Rights, and International Organizations met on Wednesday to discuss challenges in the Republic of Cameroon. Over the past year, the relationship between Cameroon's government and the country's minority Anglophone community has become increasingly violent, accelerating into armed conflict.
