YAOUNDE, Cameroon

The US government has said it will cut millions of dollars in military aid to Cameroon over allegations of gross human rights violations by the security forces.

Further, the US has urged the Cameroonian government to investigate credible abuse allegations and hold the perpetrators accountable.

In May, 2018, the US Ambassador to Cameroon, Peter Henry Barlerin, accused the security forces of targeted killings, unlawful detentions and burning and looting villages.
