An army search operation is under way in Cameroon to rescue dozens of people kidnapped from a boarding school.
At least 79 students and three others were seized yesterday 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.
According to the BBC, the Regional governor blamed separatist militias for the kidnapping.
But English-speaking separatists are accusing the government of staging the kidnapping, as an attempt to discredit their cause.
