The British Government is deeply concerned about reports of human rights violations and abuses by both security forces and armed separatists in the North-West and South-West regions of Cameroon. The killing of civilians, including children, on 14 February in Ngarbuh was appalling. In my statement of 19 February I called for an urgent and transparent investigation into what happened, and for those responsible to be held accountable. These messages were reiterated by the UK at the Human Rights Council on 27 February. We continue to call for restraint, an end to the violence and inclusive dialogue about the root causes of the crisis.
