The victims’ convoy was “targeted in an attack by separatists” on the motorway between Ekondo-Titi and Bekora, according to a senior police officer quoted by AFP.

Some Anglophone groups took up arms in 2017, demanding independence from the rest of the country where French is the main official language.
