Cameroon: 'Ambazonia', a thousand day conflict
In the two English-speaking regions of southern Cameroon, the country's regular army has been fighting secessionist armed groups in an asymmetric war for the past three years.

FRANCE 24 brings you a rare glimpse of one of Africa's forgotten humanitarian tragedies.
