Home » General » Africa: Video of Executions in Cameroon

Press Statement
Heather Nauert
Department Spokesperson
Washington, DC
July 16, 2018


The United States is gravely concerned over the recent video depicting men wearing military-style uniforms executing two women and two children, one an infant. International media, Amnesty International, and Cameroonian human rights organizations attribute the actions portrayed in the video to the Cameroonian military. We call on the Government of Cameroon to investigate thoroughly and transparently the events depicted in the video, make its findings public, and if Cameroonian military personnel were involved in this atrocity, hold them accountable.

All countries, including Cameroon, must uphold their international and national commitments and obligations to protect the human rights of their residents and promote accountability.‎
