Cameroon – Attacks in the northern part of the country (August 4, 2015)


France condemns the terrorist attacks carried out on August 4 in the extreme north of the country, during which a dozen people were killed and dozens of others – including children and adolescents – were kidnapped. The perpetrators must not go unpunished.

We extend our condolences to the victims’ families and assure the Cameroonian authorities and people of our solidarity.

France pays tribute to the efforts of the states of the Lake Chad region to combat terrorism and stands alongside them.
