At least 17 killed in separatist clashes in Cameroon's Anglophone region

In tonight's edition: at least 17 people are killed in separatist clashes in Cameroon's Anglophone region; Kenyan opposition protesters call for sackings at the electoral commission; and an Oromo religious festival in Ethiopia turns into a rare event of open defiance.

Cameroon brings in a curfew and another internet blackout after over a dozen people are reportedly killed during a secessionist protest in the Anglophone region of the country.

Also, in Kenya, opposition protesters call for sackings at the electoral commission ahead of the re-run of the presidential election later this month. They accuse police of being heavy-handed in their response.

And an Oromo religious festival turns into a rare event of open defiance. One year after a stampede started by police killed dozens at the Ireecha event, hundreds climb on stage and condemn the government, but this time officers stay away.
