At least 30 people including women and children were killed during clashes over land between neighboring communities in Cameroon’s South West region, local authorities said yesterday.

A spokesman for the Presbyterian Church in Cameroon said the fight between the Oliti and Messaga Ekol groups in Akwaya area was very violent.

The church released pictures that showed bodies lying on the ground.

The violence started when attackers stormed a funeral ceremony in the village of Bakinjaw on Saturday and continued on Sunday, according to the communication officer of Akwaya district, Okumo Angwa .

He added that people were burnt in their homes while others were beheaded in the attack. END
