Cameroon faces new Internet shutdown

Cameroon is suffering a new Internet shutdown, especially affecting social media sites, amid renewed protests in its Anglophone regions. Protests during the past year have been triggered by the requirement to use the French language in schools and courts in the English-speaking North-West and South-West regions. The government recently denied rumours that another shutdown was imminent, and telecoms companies are reporting disruptions in service without explanation.
