Cameroon: 79 school students abducted by gunmen this week in a troubled English-speaking region freed

In Cameroon, 79 school students abducted by gunmen this week in a troubled English-speaking region have been freed.
Communications Minister Issa Bakary Tchiroma said that all the abducted students have been released, without giving details of the circumstances under which they were set free. The kidnappings on Monday were the first such mass abductions seen in Cameroon.

Their release comes a day after Cameroon’s 85-year-old President Paul Biya was sworn in for a seventh term in office.
