A coach driver was killed and several other people were injured in an attack on a passenger bus convoy in strife-torn northwestern Cameroon, a public broadcaster said late Sunday. The attack launched by armed men on Saturday night is the latest violence in the restive region, where English-speaking separatists have declared an independent state. Images shared on social media of the incident appeared to show five coaches with their front windows and roofs smashed in by construction equipment. Separatist unrest in Cameroon’s two minority English-speaking regions — North-West and South-West — has left scores dead and displaced about 200,000 people since late 2016. A total of 109 members of the police and security forces have been killed, according to government figures.
