Protests: 11 school teachers kidnapped in Cameroon

About 11 school teachers have been freed in Cameroon after Presbyterian pastors and their followers staged daily protests at the camp where they were held captive by a separatist group, Rt Rev Fonki Samuel Foba has told the BBC.

The teachers were abducted on 3 November from the Presbyterian Primary and Secondary School in Kumbo city in the mainly English-speaking North-West.

The cleric said no ransom was paid for the release of the teachers.

Anglophone separatists have been demanding an independent state, saying they do not want to be part of French-speaking Cameroon, triggering a conflict that has claimed many lives.
