At least two Cameroonian government soldiers were killed in an ambush by suspected separatist fighters in the country’s restive Anglophone region, local defense sources said Sunday.
The incident occurred in Lipenja, a village of the Southwest region on Saturday.
A senior military official told Xinhua that the bodies of the two government forces were recovered after the gunmen ambushed the security checkpoint in the locality.
Two other members of the security were injured in the attack, said the source who spoke on condition of anonymity.
The separatist fighters started their conflict with government forces in 2017.
