    A journalist named Anye Nde Nsoh was killed in Bamenda, Cameroon by unknown gunmen. He had been working on three stories for the next edition of the weekly newspaper, the Advocate. This is at least the third killing of a media worker in Cameroon this year.

    Nsoh was in a pub in Bamenda’s Ntarikon neighborhood when the assailants opened fire on him. The Cameroon Association of English-Speaking Journalists (CAMASEJ) confirmed his death and called for an investigation. The regional authorities said they were not aware of the attack, and there has been no claim of responsibility so far.

    Nsoh’s death came amid a conflict between Cameroonian authorities and some separatist factions in English-speaking regions that turned violent in 2017. Thousands of people have been killed in the fighting between armed separatists and government troops, with atrocities committed on both sides.
