Tight security as Cameroon awaits symbolic anglophone 'independence'Police patrolled empty streets in Cameroon’s restive anglophone belt as a separatist group made a symbolic proclamation of independence on Sunday, a day after a young man was shot dead by security forces. In Buea, the main city in the English-speaking southwest, the streets were mostly deserted as security forces patrolled the streets including the area where the separatists were expected to gather, an AFP correspondent reported. “I can’t go out, they asked us to stay home,” said one city resident who identified herself just as Nancy.
