Nonstop unrest in Cameroon’s English speaking regions has pushed the U.S. Embassy in Yaounde to extend it’s travel ban alert to those areas. According to the US Embassy, the reason for the extension was due to the violent and deadly protests of October 1, 2017. The new security alert released on October 2, reads: “U.S. citizens are advised that the U.S. Embassy has extended its deferral of all non-essential travel for U.S. Embassy personnel to the Northwest and Southwest regions of Cameroon through October 23, 2017. “This extension is due to violent protests which caused several fatalities in the regions on October 1 and the potential for further unrest.
