MSF leaves Cameroon's Anglophone region after government suspension

Médecins Sans Frontières (Doctors without Borders) has lost a battle to keep up operations in Cameroon's northwest. Communities in the English-speaking region have been caught in devastating fighting between security forces and Anglophone separatists for four years. The violence has killed more than 3,000 people and forced one million from their homes. Despite the crisis, Cameroon’s government suspended MSF's work in the region at the end of last year and talks to reverse the decision have hit an impasse.
