A Cameroon Airlines passenger plane came under fire as it was approaching Bamenda Airport, located in the Northwest Province of the country, the airlines reported.
Witnesses and passengers reported hearing the sound of a bullet impact when the plane was stationed in the apron area. Other sources indicate that the left side of the aircraft was riddled with holes, while bullets were found inside the cabin.
The incident comes as the region has been plagued by socio-political strife known as the Anglophone Crisis since 2016, with English-speaking separatists pushing for independence. Nearly 2,000 people have died since the crisis broke out.
