YAOUNDE, Feb. 11 (Xinhua) -- At least four patients were killed early Monday when fire razed a hospital in Southwest, one of Cameroon's two war-ton English-speaking regions, Army Rescue Unit said.
"Apart from the four people, five cars were burnt and significant equipment destroyed. Suffering patients are now stranded," an army official in the rescue mission who asked not to be named told Xinhua.
The army is yet to issue an official statement over the cause of the fire.
Armed separatists are seeking to secede from French-majority Cameroon and create a new nation called "Ambazonia."
According to the United Nations, more than 430,000 people have been displaced internally since the separatists started clashing with government forces in 2017.
