Image result for Cameroon restores internet in restive anglophone regionThe Cameroonian government says it has restored the internet to its restive Anglophone regions.

This is three months after cutting it amid protests against the predominantly French-speaking government of President Paul Biya.

Cameroonian forces have cracked down on protests in the English-speaking region that erupted last October.

At least six protesters have been shot dead and hundreds others arrested, some of whom face the death penalty in military courts.

The unrest has exposed national divisions between the regions of Cameroon that were historically colonised by the French and the British.

It has also been a lightening rod for opposition to Biya’s 35-year rule.
