An army search operation is under way in Cameroon to rescue dozens of people kidnapped from a boarding school.
A government official said at least 79 students and three others were kidnapped on Monday in Bamenda, the capital of the North-West region.
The government and English-speaking separatists have accused each other of orchestrating the kidnapping. Cameroon’s North-West and South-West regions have been hit by a secessionist rebellion in recent years.
Regional governor Adolphe Lele L’Afrique Deben Tchoffo blamed separatist militias for the kidnapping.
But English-speaking separatists are accusing the government of staging the kidnapping, as an attempt to discredit their movement.
