89 Boko Haram suspects to die

AOUNDÉ, March 19, (AFP): Cameroon has condemned 89 suspected Boko Haram operatives to death for “terrorism” since the start of 2015, a judicial source said Friday. The sentences come after Cameroon adopted controversial anti-terror law in December 2014 allowing capital punishment for those found guilty of carrying out terror attacks or complicity in terrorism. Those convicted were mostly arrested on Cameroon’s border with Nigeria, the birthplace of the extremist group that has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (IS) group.
