Cameroon: Soldiers who killed women, babies in F/N region appear in court today

At least seven soldiers accused of killing women and children in the Far North Region of Cameroon will appear at the Yaounde Military Tribunal today to answer charges brought before them.

The seven soldiers are charged with murder, violation of order and complicity in murder as the case comes up 13 months after a video went viral showing some soldiers killing women and their babies in the Far North region of Cameroon.

The government of Cameroon had denied claims the video was shot in Cameroon but investigations by international NGOs and the media revealed the video was actually shot in Cameroon.

Seven soldiers were later arrested and detained with then Communication Minister Issa Tchiroma Bakary backtracking saying the soldiers will be tried accordingly.
