Bomb attack on university lecture hall wounds 11

A homemade bomb thrown through the roof of a university lecture hall wounded 11 students on Wednesday 10 November, the vice chancellor said, in an English-speaking region of Cameroon in the grip of a bloody separatist conflict, reports AFP.

University of Buea Vice-Chancellor Horace Ngomo Manga said “the device fell to the ground and exploded”. One boy and 10 girls were wounded, he told state radio CRTV, adding that all were in a stable condition. He did not elaborate on the nature of the bomb or who might have thrown it.

Wednesday’s bombing has not been claimed, but the anglophone separatists have regularly attacked schools and universities that they accuse of favouring French-language education. The separatists have also recently ramped up attacks on the country’s armed forces using improvised explosive devices.
