Prayer for Peace in Cameroon: Urging Dialogue and an End to Violence and Killings

11 Settembre 2023

We pray for Cameroon where at least three people were killed in an attack blamed on separatist rebels in the southwest of the country. According to witnesses, armed militants stopped cars, shot at passengers and set vehicles on fire. Separatists in minority English-speaking parts of Cameroon have been fighting to carve out an independent state called Ambozonia since 2017. The group carry out attacks, kidnappings and killings in the North West and South West Regions. The attack took place after schools reopened after long holidays.
