And in Cameroon, almost 80 students who were kidnapped Sunday in the northwest of the country have been released by their captors. The school’s principal and a teacher are reportedly still held captive. No group has claimed responsibility for the abduction, but Cameroon’s government has blamed separatists who have been calling for secession of Cameroon’s anglophone regions in the majority French-speaking country.
