Locals fled their homes as the sound of gunfire filled the air and the violence continued through the night, with an elderly woman shot in the leg as she made her way to a market on Tuesday morning.

Witness Stanley Fru, 23, said: "The military was chasing the fighters. All of them were shooting indiscriminately."

Regional army commander General Agha Robinson has admitted the military have found it difficult to battle the rebels, who hide among innocent civilians.
The separatists have been in the sights of the army since they began protesting against alleged discrimination by the French-speaking majority in Cameroon. Cameroon Violence: Seven Suspected English-Speaking Rebels Killed By Military
