Cameroon soldiers retreat after attacks by Ambazonians

The Cameroonian military has withdrawn from the north-western town of Belo after it was attacked by anglophone protesters, known as the Ambazonians.

The move follows weeks of military raids in English-speaking parts of Cameroon. Homes have been burned and many people arrested.

On Wednesday, fighters - believed to be Ambazonians - killed the headmaster and teacher of a school and cut off a student's hand.

A BBC correspondent in Cameroon says the school was attacked because it failed to heed the separatists' call to shut down in protest against marginalisation by the francophone majority.
